The workload of the Merit Systems Protection Boards is only growing, but its workforce is headed in the opposite direction.

That's the topic of a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee hearing today.

John Palguta, vice president for policy at the Partnership for Public Service, also worked for MSPB for more than 20 years. He joined The Federal Drive with Tom Temin with more on the challenges MSPB is facing.
