FMA National President Renee Johnson with Government Affairs Team, Greg Stanford and Brian Davis, prepares to testify before Congress.
On November 20, 2023, the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security held a field hearing Social Security’s Disservice to Public Servants: How the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO) Mistreat Government Workers. Repealing both the GPO and WEP has long been an FMA legislative priority, and FMA National President Craig Carter submitted testimony for the official hearing record.
"FMA steadfastly opposes both the GPO and WEP and urges a full repeal of both current laws," Carter wrote. "FMA therefore strongly endorsed H.R. 82 upon its introduction and urges its passage into law. This reform is overdue as demonstrated by the overwhelming support by so many in Congress. We applaud Chairman Ferguson for holding this hearing on the legislation and we call for a markup by the full Ways and Means Committee as a next step."
