- SENATE COMMITTEE DELAYS POSTAL REFORM VOTE - January 30, 2014
Legislation includes FECA reforms supported by FMA
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
The U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs met on Wednesday, January 29, to consider a substitute amendment to the Postal Reform Act of 2013 (S. 1486). Government Executive reports the "most significant sticking point" is how the postal overhaul legislation would "deal with postal rates in the future." While the committee delayed a vote this week, it is expected to resume consideration on Thursday, February 6.
The legislation includes a provision supported by FMA, which would reform the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA). During consideration, the committee rejected an amendment that would have removed the FECA provision.
