Statement by OPM Director Linda M. Springer: House Committee Passes Bill to Allow Federal CSRS Employees To Work Part-time Without Penalty

"I commend the members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for their actions yesterday, which will allow this important piece of legislation to come to the floor for a full vote," Springer said.

"Enactment of this bill would enable Federal employees covered by the Civil Service Retirement System to work part-time prior to retirement without incurring penalties to the annuity they have so rightly earned."

"I would like to thank bill sponsor Rep. James Moran, Committee chairman Henry Waxman, Ranking Member Tom Davis, Subcommittee chairman Danny Davis and Rep. Kenny Marchant for their support of this measure, which will continue to help us ensure the Federal government has an effective civilian workforce."
