The House of Representatives on October 5 adopted a budget resolution that imposed $32 billion in unspecified retirement cuts, a relatively lower but still unacceptable legislative response.
Continued advocacy by NAPS and other groups through the Federal-Postal Coalition ultimately caused the Senate to decline to go along with the House and refrain from imposing any mandatory spending cuts, including civil service retirement benefit reductions in the budget resolution adopted last week.
