  • Repackaged House bill extends same controversial VA firing procedures to all SES

One provision would put all SES members under the same, expedited disciplinary process that senior executives at the Veterans Affairs Department had until the Justice Department challenged its constitutionality.

    Some federal employee groups and committee Democrats are taking issue with a series of bills under consideration at the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The legislation largely targets accountability issues among Senior Executives and career appointees.
