Lawmakers plan bipartisan push on bill to help agencies offload unnecessary property

Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), are jumpstarting a new effort to get both sides of the Capitol dome on board with a bill to make it easier for agencies to hang the "For Sale" sign outside their doors.

Under the law, agencies would be able to keep a portion of the proceeds from the sale of real property. The bill would also create a comprehensive database compiling a list of all of the federal government's real property.

Rep. Lynch calls inaccuracies in pay debate 'hogwash'

High unemployment in the private sector and continuing economic woes are making some people focus on the pay and benefits of federal workers as being too high compared with those in industry. But one of the top House lawmakers whose subcommittee focuses on the concerns of federal workers dismissed much of the criticism over pay and benefits. Rep. Stephen Lynch said much of the unfounded comments, some of which is based on inaccurate information, hurts the government's efforts to bring smart people into public service.
