As of Aug. 1, H.R. 82—the Social Security Fairness Act—had earned the support of 288 co-sponsors. The bill would repeal two Social Security provisions that discriminate against public employees, including many NAPS members, who participate in the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). H.R. 82 would repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP).
The current number of co-sponsors falls two representatives short of reaching a two-thirds super majority in the House, which would make the bill eligible for a House floor vote. During the previous Congress, the House ran out of time to consider the bill. This, despite the House Ways & Means Committee being forced to report the bill to the House floor in September 2022 due to the bill’s overwhelming support (305 co-sponsors).
Let’s make sure the clock does not run out this Congress. Urge your representative to support H.R. 82. If your representative has co-sponsored H.R. 82, ask them to urge the House Ways & Means Committee to report the bill to the House floor and leadership to schedule it for a vote.
