Washington, D.C. -- OPM Director Linda M. Springer today announced President George W. Bush has delivered a holiday treat, making Monday, December 24 a day off for federal employees.
"President Bush acknowledges the important contributions America's federal employees make each day to ensure the success and security of our nation," said Springer. "So in the spirit of the season, President Bush is making it possible for these dedicated Americans to spend this precious four-day period with family and friends."
The Executive Order excuses most Executive Branch employees from duty on December 24. The day off does not affect Postal Service workers, nor does it include Executive Branch employees whose agencies determine they cannot be excused for reasons of national security, defense or other essential public need.
