A recent law enacted by Congress unfairly discriminates against retirement benefits for some current and all retired federal employees in Alaska. Federal employees throughout the nation are making an equal contribution to the health, well-being and security of our nation. All employees deserve equal treatment and should not be penalized in retirement for choosing to serve outside the Lower 48. The National Active and Retired Federal Employees association (NARFE) has begun a campaign to have this law amended to include everyone. I, for one, cannot understand why this imbalance has been allowed to continue.
