Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Continued April 21, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"This week’s “Waste of the Week” involves the Federal Employees‘ Compensation Act, also known as FECA. This law was enacted in 1916—well intended, I think, to provide workers’ compensation benefits to civilian Federal employees who sustained injuries while employed by the Federal Government and includes funds for vocational rehabilitation and medical benefits."
Introduction Of Federal Protective Service Parity Act Of 2015 April 16, 2015
André Carson, D-IN
"FPS is responsible for delivering security and law enforcement services for the 8,700 assets that the General Services Administration (GSA) owns, controls, or leases across the country. The Federal Protective Service is part of the frontline defense for these Federal buildings, which include Federal courthouses, Social Security Administration buildings, Agency headquarters, and other buildings. FPS law enforcement officers are authorized to carry firearms and empowered to make arrests related to the protection of buildings, grounds, and property owned by the Federal government and persons on the property. Like other law enforcement officers within DHS, FPS officers receive the same training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and often risk their lives in protection of the nearly 1 million Federal employees and visitors to Federal buildings."
Federal Employee Tax Accountability Act Of 2015 April 15, 2015
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"What the Republican majority is doing today is a gratuitous, useless, slap in the face of Federal employees who apparently do understand that they have an affirmative duty, even beyond others, to pay their taxes because they do so at a rate that is almost twice that of the general public which is more than twice that of other Americans."
Prevent Targeting At The Irs Act April 15, 2015
John Lewis, D-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 709. This legislation removes certain protections that are otherwise available to Federal employees if an employee conducts his or her official duties with the intent to extract personal gain or for a political purpose."
Tax Day And Irs Accountability April 15, 2015
Keith Rothfus, R-PA
"From IRS’ attempts to shut down people who disagree with the administration’s political agenda to Federal employees owing thousands in back taxes, the IRS needs to be held accountable to the people. Washington bureaucrats are not above the law. Americans spend countless hours and precious financial resources in filing their tax returns by April 15. They are following the law. It is only fair for the American people to expect that the IRS does the same."
