Reichert Thank You Letter to FLEOA for TSP Bill

Mr. Jon Adler

President

Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association

1100 Connecticut Avenue

Suite 900

Washington, DC 20036

 

Dear President Adler,

 

Thank you for your leadership and support of the Defending Public Safety Employees' Retirement Act. Without your work, simply put, we could not have passed this legislation.

This legislative success is an example·of how Congress can and should work. In the last Congress, you came to me with an issue impacting your members and public safety officers across the country. While state and local officers did not face a 10% tax on withdrawals from government retirement accounts after the age of 50, their federal counterparts did. This did not seem fair, and we began working on a common sense, bipartisan solution to bring parity to federal officers. On June 29th, the President signed this legislation into law.

It was an honor to be the author and sponsor of this legislation that recognizes how public safety officers give their all to protect us each and every day and how the demands of the job result in early retirement. Thank you for bringing this problem to m' attention and for your continued support throughout the process. I look forward to continued work with you and your associate, Chris Granberg, who has been indispensable in this effort.

Sincerely,

 

DAVE REICHERT

Member of Congress
