The Honorable Kevin McCarthy

Dear Mr. Speaker and Leader McCarthy:
 
I am writing on behalf of the more than 26,000 members of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association to echo the concerns recently expressed by members of the Republican Conference regarding the proposed changes to the federal retirement system outlined in the President’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget request. These proposed changes will have a disproportionate and negative impact on federal law enforcement officers, stripping them of hardearned retirement benefits and diminishing the ability of agencies to recruit and retain qualified law enforcement personnel.
