Senior Executives Association

The December 13th 2018 Senior Executives Association Presidential Rank Awards Leadership Summit was a day full celebration, thought leadership, networking and professional development education.   More than 500 senior leaders from government, the private sector and academia were on hand to recognize the 131 Presidential Rank Awards and have peer-to-peer discussions.   In addition, distinguished keynote speakers – Department of Energy Deputy Secretary Dan Brouillette; Margaret Weichert, Acting Director of OPM and Deputy Director for Management at OMB; and Joseph Heck, Chairman of the National Commission on Military, National and Public Service – discussed their leadership philosophies and recognized the enormous accomplishments of the PRA honorees.

Feds Avoid Retirement Cuts in 2018 Budget Resolution

In a narrow 216-212 vote, the House passed the Senate’s version of the 2018 budget resolution Thursday morning, which excludes cuts to the federal retirement system that were originally proposed.

The House decided earlier this week to forgo a lengthy conference over a concurrent budget resolution and simply adopt the Senate’s version, which does not include reconciliation instructions that propose billions of dollars in cuts to the federal retirement system.

The House vote does set the stage for lawmakers to begin negotiations in the coming weeks over new tax policies, as the measure includes reconciliation instructions but to only two committees: the Finance Committee to develop legislative proposals for $1.5 trillion in “comprehensive tax reform” and the Energy and Natural Resources Committee to find $1 billion in deficit reductions.

The White House applauded the passage of the resolution.

Thursday’s vote is good news for federal employees, because the recently passed budget resolution will not prompt the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to develop legislative proposals to reduce the federal deficit by $32 billion over 10 years through reforms to civil service pensions, as first suggested.
