Connolly Statement on Proposed House Republicans’ Rules Package

Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), the Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, released the following statement on the House Republicans’ rules package for the 118th Congress. 


“The Republican rules package takes the Trump administration’s war on the federal workforce to the extreme. The archaic Holman Rule and anti-Federal Employee Select Committee are nothing more than a backdoor way for MAGA Republicans to dismantle the federal workforce and carry out political vendettas at the expense of career civil servants. House Democrats will stand up for our brave, professional, and experienced federal employees and oppose GOP efforts to throw us back into a patronage system.”
