- HELP OUT OKLAHOMA TORNADO VICTIMS - June 4, 2013
Feds can donate leave to tornado victims
By Kellie Lunney, Government Executive
After Oklahoma suffered multiple tornadoes and keeps seeing a rising death toll, President Barack Obama instructed the Office of Personnel Management to establish an emergency program allowing for federal employees to transfer unused leave to employees affected by Oklahoma tornadoes in order to respond to the natural disasters. Similar emergency programs were used after Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
