84TIr CONGRESS IIOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ssion _1_ 1st Se I REPORT No. 888 EMPLOYMENT OF RETIRED MILITARY PERSONNEL IN FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE JUNE 22, 1955.-Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the State of the Union and ordered to be printed Mr. TEAGUE of Texas, from the Committee on Veterans' Affairs, submitted the following The Committee on Veterans' Affairs to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 5893) to amend paragraph I (a), part I, of Veterans Regulation No. 1 (a), as amended, to make its provisions applicable to active service on and after June 27, 1950, and prior to February 1, 1955, and for other purposes, having considered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and recommend that the bill do pass. EXPLANATION OF 13ILL Under the provisions of section 212 of Public Law 212 of the 72d Congress, no person holding a civilian office or position, either appoin- tive or elective, under the United States Government or the municipal government of the District of Columbia, or any corporation of the United States, shall be entitled to receive retired pay from the United States on account of service as a commissioned officer in excess of an amount which when combined with the annual rate of compensation from such civilian office or position, makes the total rate from both sources more than $3,000. The exceptions to this act are in the case of any Regular or emer- gency commissioned officer retired for disability on a basis of (1) an injury incurred in combat with an enemy of the United States, or (2) caused by an instrumentality of war and incurred in line of duty during war service as provided in Veterans Regulation No. 1 (a), part I, paragraph I. Exception 2 applies to those who have been retired for disability received in World War I or II service, but does not cover the Korean period of service from June 27, 1950, through January 31, 1955. The purpose of this bill is to provide coverage for this Korean 2 EMPLOY RETIRED MILITARY PERSONNEL IN CIVIL SERVICE Approved For Release 2001N]25 : CI RDP59400224A0001001000024 period and increase the ceiling on dual payments from $3,000 to $10,000. Public Law 28 of the 82d Congress in effect gave to veterans of the Korean period certain benefits enjoyed by men and women who served in World War II. This act is not in the form of an amendment to part I of Veterans Regulation No. 1 (a), as amended, and did net entitle those entitled to benefits under its provisions to the exemptio-a provided under section 212 for World War II veterans which limits its scope to those retired for disability incurred in line of duty during an enlistment or employment "as provided in Veterans Regulation Numbered 1 (a), part I, paragraph I." The requirement relates solely to salary from a civilian position and retirement pay, and does not affect the receipt of compensation l,.aid by the Veterans' Administration. Thus, a veteran receiving com. pensation for the loss of both legs, for example, could be employed by the Federal Government or the District of Columbia government or any Government corporation at whatever salary his ability war- ranted. The $3,000 limitation in section 212 of Public Law 212 was deter- mined to be a reasonable maximum by the 72d Congress in 1930. In 25 years, economic conditions have changed to such a degree as to make the present restriction of $3,000 totally unrealistic. For example, the basic pay rates for a GS-1 position range from $2,500 to $2,980, with higher rates for longevity. A GS--5 ranges from $3,410 to $4,160. Military pay has increased drastically since 1.930 and with it, of course, goes an increase in retirement pay. As can bo readily seen from the tables reproduced below, the existing limitation of $3,000 virtually bars a retired man or woman from employmena with the Government and in merry cases it means the loss of valuable skills which could and should be utilized. It is for this reason thai; the committee has increased the ceiling to $10,000. The current pay table for classified civil service employees and re?? tired pay for military personnel follow: The pay scales of the Classification Act of 1949, as amended July 1951-General Schedule Grader Basic pay rates Longevity 1 ___--- ___ _ _._ $2,500 $2, 580 $2, 660 $2, 740 $2, 8Z0 $2, 000 $2 080 $3, 060 $3,140 $3, 231 2_. 2,750 2,830 2,910 2,990 3,070 3,160 3.230 3,310 3,390 3,471) 3. -_ _ 2,960 3,0311 3,110 3,190 3,270 3,350 3,430 3,510 3,500 3,671) 4____________________ 3,175 3,255 3,335 3,415 3,495 3,575 3,655 3,735 3,815 3,891 fi -_ _ 3.410 3,535 3,660 3,785 3,910 4,035 4,160 4,285 4,410 4,635 0 ___-__________ --_ 3,795 :1,921 4,045 4,170 4,205 4,420 4,545 4,670 4,795 4,9211 7.-__.._._______..._ 4,620 4,74 4,870 4,995 4,720 4,245 5,370 5,485 5,620 5,:7&I 8 _ 4,060 5 5,746 4,810 4,435 5,520 5,685 5,810 5,936 6,660 5, 91) 9 -_ _ - - - - ___ _ 5,500 5, 5,750 5,475 6,000 6, 25 6,250 6,375 6,500 1 6,181) IU___ _______ ______ 5,940 026 6,1 0 5,340 6,$40 6,740 1 0,946 --2- 7,140 7,340 7,5411 n 7,040 4 7,240 7,390 7,640 7,840 8,040 - -- ----- 8,140 8,440 8,5411 I2._--_-_._____.-_--_ 8,360 8,260 8,760 8,960 0, 0 9,3 --__-. 9,260 9,760 9,6411 13 9, 660 8, 560 0, 000 0, 200 10 0, 400 00 0, 300 _- _ _. , 9, 760 1, 9611 14.________________ 9,8 !1,0 1 ,300 11,500 11,800 -----0 .___.... 800 0 12,000 12, 00 12,2011 i!__--___- --- -._ 00 12,000 50 11,200 1 11,400 12,650 12,800 ________ _____ ___ 12, 2 12,200 1'1,901! -- Ifi 12,000 12,2011 12,400 1$fiUU 12,8-0 -------- -------- ___ -------- -------- ------_.. 17-__.__-___-__- 13,000 13,201 13,400 13,600 13,800 ..-_____ ______. ___._.__ ___._. ..._._... -- 1F__ ______ _________ 14,800 ._______ ________ ___ ___. .. __.___ .__.____ ____.___ _-______ ________ _.__.__..

CIIAIRntArv: Your Iegncst for comment on the bill H. R. 4491E to amend paragraph I (a), part I of the Veterans' Regulation No. 1 (a), as amended, to make its provisions applicable to active service during an enlistment or emplop- rnent entered into on or after June 27, 1950, and prior ter Feh ruary 1, 1955, hEs beep assigned to this Department by the Secretary of Defense for the preparation of a report thereon expressing the views of the Department of Defense. This biit would amend Veterans' Rngulation No. 1 (a), as amended (38 U. S. C;, ch. 12A) by adding to its provisions relative to the payment of a pension to veterans and depmtdents of veterans for disability or death resulting from active military or naval service the phrase; "or during an enl~tment or employment entered into on or after June 27, 1950, and prior to February 1, 195b" and "an active service on or after Junc 27, 1930, and Prior to February 1, 1955." The basin statute which this regulation implements (the act of March 20, 1938, 48 Stat. 8) stipulates in section 19, title I, that "the regulations issued by tY.e President under this title which are in effect at the expiration of two wars aftN~~r the date of enactment of this Act shell continuo in effect without farther chaue~e or modiflration until bhe Congress by law shall otherwise provide." Thus, Lhis Veterans ILogulation 1 (a) oan apparently only be amended by lavF, ae H. IL. 4490 seeks to do. ! The effect of H. ]L. 4490 is to exclude from the statutorylimitation on tk:.e amount of retired pay to which commissioned otfiocre holding Federal civil office are entitled (the act of Juno 30, 1932, 47 Stat. 406, as amended, b U.

The DoparCmeut of the Navy, on behalf of the Department of Defense, inter. poses no objection to the emt.otrnent of H. R.. 4490.
