PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE   Data Posted: 1 April

      Another Federation Legislative Conference,  which is held every 2 years in the odd year, has come and gone.  Nancy Carlson-Gotts & I traveled to Alexandria, VA, to attend the conference, March 10-13th,  the 13th being the day we visited the  Capitol Hill offices of Representatives Chris Stewart, Rob Bishop, Ben McAdams, & John Curtis,  also the office of Senator Mitt Romney.  Due to a scheduling problem with the office of Senator Lee we only had time to leave the materials packet with his staff.  The purpose of our visits was to familiarize and re-iterate NARFE'S legislative goals for the 116th Congress,  particularly our concerns regarding the Postal Reform efforts, especially the effort to force Postal employees to sign up for Medicare part B in order to continue their FEHB plans.

      We also discussed the current method of determining the COLA using the CPI –W,  and the alternative method, CPI-E,  which would recognize the increased costs of medical care & living expenses of the elderly as being greater than the living expenses of the younger wage earners.

      In each visit we repeated NARFE's  main mission, that of protecting and preserving the earned benefits of federal employees and their retirement,  and emphasized the difference between “entitlements”  and “benefits”.  Our visit to Capitol Hill made for a busy day,  but we were thankful the day was sunny, a little chilly when we started, but comfortable when we ended.

     Many of our speakers at the conference stated the importance of constituents' messages, especially those that were personalized, stating how a legislation affected them and or their families; they appreciate knowing if the legislation has had a positive effect,  but also need to know the harmful/negative aspect as well.  So, to those of you who have responded to the “calls for action” a big THANK  YOU,  and keep up the good work!  

Marla Ramey, President
