Wikipedia, for all its faults, is supposed to give fair and unbiased information. Only objective experts are supposed to have access to its articles for editing. So, why would someone want congressional staff members to come anywhere near Wikipedia? Cato Institute Senior Fellow Jim Harper joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with a list of good reasons.
Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment, says shrinking forces won't be enough to match sequestration-level budgets.

Congress is in recess, which means your pay and benefits won't change -- at least for the next month. But budget conversations in September (when Congress comes back) may mean you should keep your ears open again. Congressman Chris Van Hollen is ranking member of the House Budget Committee and Democratic representative of the 8th district of Maryland. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said the most important issue you should watch is money (of course!).
The Inspector General Act gives IGs authority to obtain any information necessary for their investigations, but some agencies are giving IGs a hard time with their requests. Members of Senate and House oversight committees are calling on Shaun Donovan, the recently confirmed director of the Office of Management and Budget, to address the issue.
President Obama has signed a big Veterans Affairs Department reform bill into law. No group will be watching what happens next more than the nation's military veterans. Dan Dellinger is national commander of the American Legion. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss what they're looking for when it comes to the new law.
IT Alliance for Public Sector experts say there are two major reasons for their fleeting hope—one is the little time lawmakers have in Washington over the next four months; and second is the continued impasse among the Senate and House over the role of agency CIOs. ITAPS says a two-and-a-half month continuing resolution is likely and an omnibus spending bill for 2015 is gaining support.

Federal contractors are gearing up to fight a new executive order. President Barack Obama last week signed the directive to protect contractors' employees.

Ben Goad, staff writer for The Hill Newspaper, joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the battle.
Comedian Steve Martin has some useful words of advice -- two of them, actually -- for tax deadbeats on Capitol Hill, says Senior Correspondent Mike Causey.
