RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT
THE HOLMAN RULE
The Republican majority in Congress has wasted no time in propagating a disastrous agenda that threatens the security of our government and its workers. This week, House Republicans reinstated The Holman Rule, which could allow them to slash federal workers’ salaries to just $1.
The Washington Post reports that this reinstatement “empowers any member of Congress to offer an amendment to an appropriations bill that targets a specific government employee or program.” Given the president-elect’s recent targeting Energy Department workers, there is no doubt that this rule would be used to advance conservative priorities at the expense of America’s hard-working federal employees.
CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES NOW
It’s time to call your representatives and demand that they oppose any legislation that would resurrect The Holman Rule. Here is a sample script that you can use when contacting your member(s) of Congress:
Hi, my name is __________, and I am a voting constituent. I want to strongly urge you to oppose The Holman Rule, which unfairly targets federal workers and threatens the important work they do. Please ensure that this rule is not included in any legislation going forward. Your constituents will certainly be watching to see how you vote.
