WASHINGTON - American Federation of Government Employees Legislative and Political Director Beth Moten today sent a letter to members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee urging them to reject a proposal that would amount to a $79 billion tax increase on federal employees by requiring them to contribute an additional 5 percent of their salary toward their defined pension benefit plan.
