Two veteran lawmakers forecast the year ahead on Capitol Hill.
A Northern Virginia lawmaker is successful in making the case to the Pentagon for a delay to give more than three dozen DoD agencies in Arlington County and the City of Alexandria two more years to make their move to new secure facilities under the BRAC process. Rep. Jim Moran (D.-Va.) says new buildings and infrastructure at Fort Belvoir simply aren't ready, and in the meantime, wants to ease the financial pressures on DoD landlords until the moves can happen.
The President's State of the Union address spelled out the budget freeze we've been expecting. So how will that affect federal employees? We ask two experts - one inside, and one outside the Beltway.
Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) will introduce a Congressional Resolution today stating that federal employees are entitled to, and should come to expect, a reasonable degree of personal safety and security on the job.
Federal employees could be in line for a hefty tax under a Senate proposal for healthcare reform. The Senate Finance Committee bill would levy a 40-percent tax on the overall value of some health insurance plans starting in 2013: specifically those costing more than $8,000 dollars for individuals, and family plans costing more than $21,000 dollars. The tax would be imposed on insurance companies, but analysts believe that cost would be passed on to employers and consumers.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said it's possible there will be a government shutdown at the end of this month.
A six-week continuing resolution did not pass the House in a vote today. The government runs out of funds on Sept. 30 if Congress does not pass a bill. What's more, lawmakers face a shortened deadline to sort out 2012 funding — Congress will be in recess all next week.
On today's Federal Drive: The Senate has appeared to avert a government shutdown with the passage of a stopgap funding measure and a proposed bill would allow federal employees to donate unused sick leave to other feds.
