IMPORTANT NEWS 

We want to THANK all federal workers!  We want to show appreciation to all those that keep our government working!

Please encourage your representatives to support a pay raise for federal workers.  Due to years of pay freezes, federal workers’ wages have been stagnant.  The House has currently passed a pay raise for federal workers, which is pending Senate approval.
