R. JZ J, a bill protecting the constitutional rights of Federal employees, which is scheduled for markup 12 September by the Subcommittee on Retirement and Employee Benefits, House Post Office and Civil Service Committee.

Martiny assured me that the exemption from section (a) is in effect a total exemption. He is concerned about an amendment by Representative Morris Udall (D. , Ariz.) requiring agencies to report on their implementation of the bill. He (Martiny) will follow the bill closely and suggested if we have comments we hold them for the full Committee. 2. who was referred by the office of Representative David C.
