From our friends at federalnewsradio.com:

More than a quarter of the Senate has expressed concern with the Office of Personnel Management’s proposed changes to the federal employee retirement system.

In a letter to OPM Director Jeff Pon, 26 Senate Democrats urged the administration to put aside these proposals and refocus their efforts on on recruitment and retention goals.

Now, if you look at the list of names of those who signed the letter, it does appear to represent the more liberal wing of the Democratic Party. But even if we are not talking about a bipartisan message, it may be hard for OPM to ignore 26 Senators. Especially since there are probably Republicans from districts with a lot of federal employees who share these sentiments but might not want to sign on with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Over 25 senators urge OPM to drop proposed retirement changes, focus on recruitment challenges
