Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Administrative Leave Reform Act April 26, 2016
Jason Chaffetz, R-UT
"Mr. Speaker, I move that the House suspend the rules and pass the bill (H.R. 4359) to amend title 5, United States Code, to provide that Federal employees may not be placed on administrative leave for more than 14 days during any year for misconduct or poor performance, and for other purposes, as amended."
Official Personnel File Enhancement Act April 26, 2016
Stacey Plaskett, D-VI
"The introduced version of this legislation would have allowed an agency to put a permanent notation of an investigative finding in an employee’s file without giving the employee an opportunity to respond. The bill, as reported, would preserve the principles of due process that help to protect our Federal employees from arbitrary acts and political influence. It would provide a former employee with notice and opportunity to respond to an adverse investigative finding before a notation is placed in the individual’s personnel file. The legislation also gives the individual the right to appeal the agency’s decision to the Merit Systems Protection Board, which we believe is the appropriate place for that."
Louisiana Is Still Feeling The Impacts Of Deepwater Horizon April 20, 2016
Garret Graves, R-LA

No Hires For The Delinquent Irs Act April 20, 2016
John Lewis, D-GA
"This is a mean piece of legislation and it is not right. It is not fair. It is mean-spirited. So, I ask you: Why do we want to punish these Federal employees? Why do we want to go after the majority of IRS workers who are just hardworking, dedicated public servants? More importantly, Mr. Speaker, what good does this bill do?"
Small And Disadvantaged Business Enhancement Act Of 2016 April 19, 2016
Steven Chabot, R-OH
