OPM says safety is paramount in government closure decisions

In Washington, even an inch of slushy snow is enough to cause havoc with commuters. It's a big factor in whether or not the Federal Government will open for business here in Washington, D.C. FederalNewsRadio's Senior Correspondent Mike Causey broke the news that the Office of Personnel Management will now have a decision on whether to open or close the government on bad weather days by 4 am, instead of 5 am. Yesterday, the head of OPM held a first-ever, "behind the scenes" look at how that decision is made.
