Congress needs to pass legislation to protect Federal employees from the personal effects of government shutdowns in the form of protective relief. This shall include protection from the termination or cancellation of:
Cell Phone service
Protection again default judgements
Postponement of foreclosures
Postponed civil judicial proceedings
Deferred income tax payments
Federal Employees should not be held hostage to politics and circumstance outside of their control. Unlike typical jobs, some employees are require to work even though they are not paid. For those workers who serve a via role in country's safety and security we need them to focus on the task at hand and not worry about the losing their utilities, cars, or home.
This bill is for the Border Patrol agents, TSA agents, Federal Corrections officers, Air Traffic Controllers, and all other federal employees that are affected by this shutdown. Regardless of your position on border security and the wall, I hope we can come together and provide some relief to those who keep our country safe.
