Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Bosnia Today September 18, 2014
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"Last year, Members of Congress and some staff were barred from any further participation in the Federal Employees Health Benefits plan, the FEHB, and compelled on to ObamaCare exchanges."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed— Continued September 18, 2014
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"The Postal Service has overpaid by $2.5 billion what they owe into the Federal Employee Retirement System. Given the formula used, which is not taking into account that postal employees are older and die sooner than other Federal employees, the Postal Service is going to continue to overpay monies. So they are owed a $2.5 billion refund, and if we don’t do something, they are going to continue to overpay. We should first get them the $2.5 billion refund. The second thing we should do is change the formula so it reflects the demographics of the Postal Service versus the rest of the Federal workforce."
Federal Records Accountability Act Of 2014 September 16, 2014
Mark Meadows, R-NC
"Records can be lost due to ignorance, inattention, or intentional malice. We should not tolerate any of these excuses, but the intentional destruction of records, Mr. Speaker, in particular, is a criminal act, and Federal employees found to have committed such a crime should be fired."
Government Reports Elimination Act Of 2014 September 16, 2014
Mark Warner, D-VA
"If these reports are not being used—and are simply collecting dust on a shelf—then they are wasteful, and we cannot afford that kind of waste Eliminating a handful of reports won’t solve our budget challenges—but every hour and dollar saved helps. This bill helps free up time for our Federal employees to focus on priorities."
In Recognition Of Mr. John Heuberger, Deputy Commander Of The Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Center In Tobyhanna, Pa September 16, 2014
Matt Cartwright, D-PA
"Mr. Heuberger is a role model in the workplace—truly an individual other federal employees should seek to emulate. His hard work and dedication to all facets of our making our military the best it can be are overly commendable. During his Tobyhanna years, he drew on past experiences and relationships to hone his leadership skills, consistently sought to promote positive thinking, and provided invaluable guidance to his colleagues and fellow employees. The role Mr. Heuberger played in his years of service at DLA is an integral part of the critical mission to supply and equip our military. I am honored to recognize outstanding individuals engaged in this mission."
