- FMA Supported Bill to prevent a Future Return of Schedule F Passes House - September 16, 2022
On Thursday, September 15, the House of Representatives passed the Preventing a Patronage System Act (H.R. 302) by a vote of 225-204.
FMA strongly supports the bill, which would 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 in October 2020, 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 urge the Senate to consider and vote favorably on H.R. 302.
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.
