FEW Salutes Senator for Introducing Paid Parental Leave Bill
Date:6/17/2008

WASHINGTON, June 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Federally Employed Women (FEW) salutes United States Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) for introducing the "Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act of 2008" (S 3140) in the Senate. We also thank Sens. John Warner (R-VA), Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY), John Kerry (D-MA), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Richard Durbin (D-IL) for co-sponsoring this important bill. "We appreciate the support these Senators have given to federal workers in the past and applaud the introduction of this bill yesterday," stated Rhonda Trent, FEW's National President.

"In addition, co-sponsorship of this bill will be a component of the FEW Congressional Scorecard at the end of this congressional session," added Kopenhaver.

This employee benefit would not only help current federal employees, but would also be a great new incentive for younger generations to work for the federal government. "We all know that over the next five years, large number of retirements are expected in the federal workforce," warned Cecelia Davis, FEW Vice President for Congressional Relations. "Without new employees entering the federal workforce, many services that we all rely on might have to be cut back, including mail delivery, assistance with Social Security and help for our nation's most needy," Davis concluded.

FEW's members have been greatly concerned about the expected wave of retirements and have prioritized their legislative goals to help of
