National Border Patrol Council
The Homeland Security Department is facing allegations that its border patrol agents are abusing overtime.
The National Border Patrol Council is defending members' use of Administratively Uncontrollable Overtime (AUO). Shawn Moran, vice president of the Council, says the problem with an earlier released Office of Special Counsel's report on the use of OT at the agency is that people who use AUO can't always work an 8-hour day.
Today, Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.) introduced a pay reform bill that would allow border patrol agents to choose between three pay schedules. The NBPC supports the bill.
Moran joined Tom and Emily to discuss the issue before the legislation was released.

Federal News Radio
The Defense Department is pushing the idea of open architectures — systems that can be rapidly upgraded in increments over time — hopefully for less money. But for now, the military services are filled to the brim with systems that are anything but open. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has more on the military's efforts to bring open architecture to closed systems.
Emily was on site at AFCEA Bethesda's 6th Health IT Day, interviewing event participants and organizers. Listen to her interviews on our conference page.
