Q: Section 4 of Public law 109-313 allows some rehired annuitants in acquisition-related positions to be rehired at full salary with no offset to their annuity. The law includes a sunset provision that this authority will end on Dec. 31, 2011. Has it been extended? Is it expected to be extended? How can I keep track of its status?
A: No, this provision hasn’t been extended, and we haven’t heard that any effort is being made to do so. To keep track of any proposed legislation, you have to rely on a variety of sources: the media, your congressional relations office, your members of Congress, and by typing in key words in the space provided, www.congress.gov.
