Significant Progress!

Sharing significant progress in our request (victory is within sight!), with tremendous gratitude to everyone who has signed and shared this petition! Excerpt: "Part-time emergency employees deployed to assist in Superstorm Sandy relief efforts have won federal health benefits, the Office of Personnel Management announced Friday. The Office of Personnel Management is issuing an interim final rule, obtained by Government Executive, to expand the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program to part-time workers with FEMA, known as reservists. The rule takes effect immediately. The announcement comes after an online petition requesting the benefits received nearly 100,000 signatures in the 10 days since it was launched.
