These are the stories Federal News Radio reporters are working on today.

  • You pay about 30 per cent of your health care premiums now, as a Federal employee...and the government pays the rest. But that might not be the case for long. Federal News Radio Senior Correspondent Mike Causey's column today is titled "20 Percent Hike In Your Health Premiums?" and he's here to talk about it.

  • Cybersecurity legislation is on a fast track in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is setting up groups to negotiate different aspects of the White House's proposed cyber bill. The White House's proposal passed its first test today before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Federal News Radio Executive Editor Jason Miller has details about the hearing.
