DHS Secretary Johnson baffled by 'absurd' budget conversation

A vote in the Senate could come as early as Thursday on a bill that would fund the Homeland Security Department beyond this Friday. If passed, the bill would still have to clear the House, before being sent to the President's desk. While Congress was busy making moves Wednesday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson went on the offensive to ensure Congress doesn't shut down his department. 30,000 DHS workers would be sent home and the trickle-down effect on state and local governments and law enforcement organizations would worsen if Congress doesn't pass a bill, Johnson said.

IRS struggles to handle fraudulent tax returns under smaller budget

The IRS is in a bind to be both fast and accurate with this season's tax returns, and awards billions in fraudulent claims as a result. That's a problem that will only get worse unless Congress raises IRS' budget to allow for new hires, according to the National Treasury Employees Union.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

If asked, many people with knowledge of the federal government would agree that problems surround the Senior Executive Service. But if you ask what the problem is, you'll get very different answers. For example, of the 890 career senior executives who left government in fiscal 2014, just two were fired for discipline or performance. Is that because the laws make it hard to fire executives even when they do something scandalous? Or is it because leaders don't want to use the authorities at their disposal? On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, and as part of her special report, "Fixing the SES," Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp dissected the problems with help from Eddie Ribas. He's an SES member and human-resources expert who has worked at many agencies, including the Office of Personnel Management and now the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
