This pettition's intent is to persuade our elected representatives to pass a law to establish limits in the duration of future furloughs (Government shutdowns), yet allow for legitimate extensions only by majority vote in Congress or the Senate.

What we know, a government shutdown may be instituted at any time and for an unknown duration of time.

There are currently no legal safeguards in place to protect federal employees from an uncertain financial future.

Federal employees, many of which are military vets and their families, serve the American public by working in Government.

We request that these public servants be afforded constructs, with regard to future furloughs, that create reasonable expectations in order to financially weather these events.
