What’s the latest on Capitol Hill?

NARFE's Chris Farrell joins host Mike Causey to talk about some of the bills introduced in Congress that affect federal workers. May 21, 2014

May 21, 2014 — This week on “Your Turn”, Chris Farrell, with the legislative department of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association, joins host Mike Causey to talk about pending legislation in Congress that affects federal workers.

Farrell tracks current bills and is a goldmine of information about how the process works (or not) on Capitol Hill. He’s also been-there-done-that on many legislative skirmishes ranging from proposals to de-liberalize the retirement system, reduce future COLAs and raise employee contributions.

He’ll also explain how COLAs can be delayed, deferred or come in diet versions, and why employees can’t retire at the end of the year to get a bigger COLA than their pay raise.
