Walking through the federal minefield

March 4, 2015 — Congress is looking at the size of the 2016 pay raise, new classification and promotion procedures, a major change in the retirees cost of living program, and a program to take-back bonuses awarded to some Department of Veterans Affairs staffers. Plus a variety of other “reforms.”

So what’s real, and what is bluff?

This week on “Your Turn”, Jennifer Mattingley, director of government affairs at the law firm of Shaw, Bransford and Roth, joins host Mike Causey to talk about the possible mine field feds must cross this year.

Later in the show, Federal Times Senior Writer Andy Medici will talk about the status of phased retirement and possible changes in defense per diem rates.
