FEW Announces Legislative Goals for Remainder of 110th Congress; Delivers Fact Sheets to Legislators
Date:3/26/2008

WASHINGTON, March 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Federally Employed Women (FEW) has announced the organization's four legislative priorities for the remainder of the 110th Congress.

1. Enactment of a Paid Parental Leave Act (S 80/HR 3799). FEW supports the

creation of a new and separate category of paid leave for federal

workers following the birth or adoption of a child.

2. Enactment of the SES Diversity bill (S2148/HR3774). The Senior

Executive Service (SES) needs to better reflect the diversity of the

federal workforce overall.

3. Enactment of the FERS Redeposit Act (HR 2533). Retirees who return to

government service after receiving a refund of retirement contributions

should be able to re-enter without losing their accrued annuity.

4. Repeal of the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination

Provision (WEP). These unfair Social Security provisions drastically

reduce benefits for federal retirees simply because they chose to serve

their country in the civilian workforce.

"These four legislative priorities will achieve the organization's overall goal of preparing the federal workforce for the vast numbers of projected retirements expected over the next five years," stated FEW's President Rhonda Trent. "We need to ensure that the services performed by these retiring federal workers -- many of who serve in managerial roles -- are not curtailed due to a lack of personnel."

In order to help achieve these goals, FEW has hand-delivered the fact sheets, along with the organization's Legislative Agenda (http://www.few.org/docs/legislative/FEW_Agenda%20newsletter110.pdf) and employment statistics for each congressional dist
