- FMA Supports Bill to prevent a Future Return of Schedule F - September 14, 2022
House of Representatives will vote on September 14, 2022
FMA strongly supports legislation to prevent any future administration -- Democrat or Republican -- from reviving Schedule F. We supported President Biden's action to rescind the Executive Order that originally created Schedule F, and swiftly endorsed the Preventing a Patronage System Act (H.R. 302), sponsored by House Government Operations Subcommittee Chairman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) when it was introduced early in the 117th Congress, as well as the inclusion of the bill language in two other legislative vehicles that have passed the House. We are pleased the House will vote today on the stand-alone bill and urge its passage.
FMA National President Craig Carter sent a letter to all members of the House of Representatives prior to the vote on the House floor on H.R. 302. To view the letter, click here. FMA also joined a Federal-Postal Coalition letter in support of the hill. To see that letter, click here.
