LATEST NEWS ABOUT THE LEGISLATIVE EVENTS DEC 2018

Now that the 2018 congressional elections are past and the control of the House of Representatives has shifted to the Democrats, we should continue to work toward our legislative goals:  Protect benefits of federal employees and retirees, rescind or modify the WEP and GPA that severely restrict Social Security benefits to CSRS retirees, and prevent Postal retirees from being forced to subscribe to Medicare when they chose not to.

 We congratulate Congressman Andy Barr (District 6) on his election victory, and we expect to work with him on these issues.  Remember that any bills introduced in Congress during the current Congress and not passed will have to be reintroduced in the next Congress.

  NARFE encourages all members to review the weekly legislative message available for telephone callers at  (703) 838-7780 or toll free at (877) 217-8234 and posted on the NARFE web site www.narfe.org.  Continue to contact our congressional representatives (Senate and House) with your position on legislative issues.                                                                                        

Congressman Barr can be reached at his office, 2709 Old Rosebud Road, Lexington, KY 40509, (859) 219-1366 M-F 9-5 p.m.
