Alexandria, VA – Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) introduced the Public Service Reform Act (H.R. 3115) on May 5, 2023. The bill would eliminate due process and make all federal employees “at-will.” Federal Managers Association (FMA) National President Craig Carter made the following comments on the introduction of the bill:
Alexandria, VA – The House of Representatives passed legislation to address the debt ceiling, the Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023 (H.R. 2811) on April 26 by a vote of 217-215. Federal Managers Association (FMA) National President Craig Carter made the following comments on the release:
"FMA recognizes Congress and the Biden Administration clearly need to craft a solution to the looming debt ceiling issue. No one – Democrat, Republican, or independent – wants to see the country default on our debts, knowing the financial crisis that would cause around the world, and we acknowledge H.R. 2811 as a continuation of the dialogue toward a reasonable, sustainable solution. However, the bill, as passed by the House, regrettably misses the mark.
