      DOD Appropriations bill will be on the floor Wednesday or Thursday.
    Posted on Tuesday, June 22 @ 12:54:51 EDT by admin

    Legislation nouser writes "This is to let you know about an amendment that Mr. Inslee is
    working on with Mr. Van Hollen regarding the NSPS program. We were
    hoping that you could forward this on to the DOD Task, as we anticipate the DOD Appropriations bill will be on the floor Wednesday or Thursday.

    This amendment will allow personnel reform to take place without
    compromising appeal rights, due process, and collective bargaining.
    The amendment will be drafted along the following lines (we do not have a
    final draft available at this time):

    "None of the funds made available in this Act may be used to suspend
    or modify regulations promulgated under chapter 43, 71, 75, or 77 of title
    5, United States Code."

    These chapters of Title 5 are core employee rights, and there will be
    no provisions that relate to taking money from any existing defense
    programs, nor any provisions that add any money to the bill.

    We have never been allowed a clean vote on this program. We got one
    procedural vote on a Motion to Recommit that lost very narrowly
    (204-224), but every other time amendments have been blocked at Rules Committee, or the vote has been part of larger packages involving veterans care, military pay raises, and funding for overseas operations. My boss and others feel it is important to force the Republicans in Congress to take this vote without the cover of all those extra pieces of legislation.

    This will most likely be our only chance to have this vote. We
    appreciate any help in letting the Locals know that it will be coming up, and any efforts to let other Members know the importance of this vote.

    Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this.
