UPDATE: Congress leaves this week for a two-week recess without calling HR 1364 to the House floor for a vote. The bill restricts the use of official time and retroactively punishes employees who worked on official time in the past. This is a huge victory for the unions and others, who understand that official time is an important labor-management tool that ultimately saves the government money and helps agencies succeed. We believe HR 1364 is still headed to the floor after the recess, so please keep working to contact your Representatives to Say No to HR 1364.
