No Public Retirement Funds for Members of Congress who Commit a Felony

We hope you will join us in our letter to the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee urging the inclusion of language in the FY19 Legislative Branch Appropriations bill that prohibits public funds for the retirement benefits of a Member of Congress
who is convicted of a felony. If a soldier is dishonorably discharged, he loses his military benefits. Surely we should not hold Members of Congress to a lower standard. If you would like to sign this letter, please contact Mark Pieschel in Rep. Yoho’s office
at mark.pieschel@mail.house.gov or Grant Dubler in Rep. Rosen’s office at grant.dubler@mail.house.gov. Thank you for your consideration of this request.

We respectfully invite you to cosponsor
H.R. 5057, the Protect America’s Secrets Act, which would prohibit any U.S. government employee, including an employee working in the Executive Office of the President, from being granted access to “highly sensitive” information unless and until
