Letter Urging Congress to Block Funding to Implement Schedule F Executive Order - November 24, 2020
This open letter to Congress was originally published by the Government Accountability Project.
FMA's open letter in conjunction with partner organizations urges Congress to block funding in order to prevent the implementation of the Schedule F Executive Order (EO) in the federal workforce. The EO creates a broad exception to competitive civil service rules through a new Schedule F job classification, removing protections ensuring such civil servants are hired and fired based on merit. The new classification could apply to hundreds of thousands of federal positions, exposing employees in these jobs to politically motivated hiring and firing.
