WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement today after Congressional Republicans blocked the inclusion of language to reverse President Trump’s Schedule F Executive Order in government funding legislation:
“I’m extremely disappointed that Republicans blocked the inclusion of language to reverse President Trump’s cynical Schedule F Executive Order in the latest government funding legislation. The Trump Administration’s decision to reclassify thousands of civil servants in order to make it easier to fire and replace them with partisan individuals ought to alarm all Americans. Reports that agencies are moving forward with this order in the waning weeks of the Trump Administration are deeply alarming, and would seriously harm the ability of our government to serve its citizens. I’ll work with the incoming Biden-Harris Administration to reverse this harmful order and undo President Trump’s attempts to undermine the federal civilian workforce.”
