Wednesday - 9/21/2011, 6:17pm EDT
These are the stories Federal News Radio reporters are working on today.
- The numbers from President Obama's deficit reduction plan aren't looking good for federal employees. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey calls it a "diet paycheck," and he tells you why.
- Senate lawmakers froze the number of non-emergency employees at the Homeland Security Department. And its contractors could be next. The provision to keep the number of DHS employees steady was one of dozens of amendments agreed to by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee today. The committee approved the first-ever DHS authorization bill. Federal News Radio's Jason Miller has the details.
- Dramatic reforms to the Postal Service are included in legislation backed by a couple of powerful House Republicans and opposed by Democrats. Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp has details from Capitol Hill.
- It's back to basics for the Air Force. The service's chief of staff says they've got to develop new capabilities. But, Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, the days of putting money into technology that's not ready for prime time are over.
