Last week was National Police Week. Over the last several years, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers’ Association has gotten accustomed to seeing many of its legislative priorities sent to the president’s desk during the week-long appreciation. That wasn’t exactly the case this year. Only one bill cleared either chamber of Congress: A fairly simple reauthorization of a grant program for bulletproof vests. Don Mihalek is the executive vice president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association. He talked with Federal News Network’s Jared Serbu about what’s left on the legislative agenda on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
