As the Senate continues to debate one of the largest re-organizations of the federal government in recent history, CSE today urged them to follow through on President Bush’s recommendation to allow for worker flexibility in the newly established Department.
“Without this flexibility, our antiquated civil service system will only hamper efforts to create a streamlined and effective Department,” said Paul Beckner, CSE’s President and CEO. “By kowtowing to their liberal union constituencies the Democrats put the entire effort in jeopardy.”
As a grassroots advocacy group that fights nationwide for lower taxes, less government and more freedom, CSE has long advocated the reform of government processes.
“The creation of the Homeland Security Department provides a unique opportunity to find new and innovative ways to provide incentives for employees while increasing government effectiveness,” continued Beckner.
