Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) and the Center for Worker Freedom (CWF) are proud to support Rep. Jody Hice’s soon-to-be introduced Federal Employee Accountability Act.
This bill would restrict unionized federal employees from conducting union business during work hours, an outrageous practice known as “official time.”
The U.S. Office of Personal Management reports that in merely one year, workers spent almost 3.4 million hours on “official time,” wasting about $157 million taxpayer dollars.
