House Republicans are planning to send a letter to the Trump administration and are garnering signatures to help them promote and solicit interest in easing the firing process of employees across the federal government, Government Executive reports.
According to the article, the lawmakers—as well as several advocacy groups— are asking agency leaders if they believe applying the authorities now in place at VA would be “beneficial to operational efficiency, morale and employee accountability,” and whether they have suggestions to “improve or expand these authorities."
To date, about 24 conservative House members have co-signed the letter.
