Social Security Issues
(1) Support the H.R. 1332/S. 2010, the "Social Security Fairness Act"
We added one (1) cosponsor to H.R,. 1332, bringing our current total to one hundred sixty-five (165) cosponsors. Please note that this total differs slightly from THOMAS, as we are not including Delegates Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and Madeleine Z. Bordallo (D-Guam), who have limited voting rights on the floor. We are also not including Representative David Wu (D-OR), who resigned his seat earlier this year, or Representative Dean Heller (R-NV), who left the House after being appointed to fill the Senate seat vacated by Senator John Ensign (R-NV). We are also not including Representative Donald M. Payne (D-NJ) who died earlier this year.
We currently have seventeen (17) cosponsors on S. 2010.
In addition, National Legislative Office staff continue to work with staff in the office of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) on S. 113, the "Public Servant Retirement Protection Act," and with Representative Kevin P. Brady on the House companion measure, H.R. 2797. This legislation would not impact the Government Pension Offset (GPO) but would repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision and replace it with a more equitable, individualized calculation of Social Security benefits based on an individualís entire work history.
Currently, there is one (1) cosponsor on the Senate bill and seven (7) cosponsors on the House bill. Replies:
