May, 02, 2008

By Dan Friedman Congress Daily

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday passed by voice vote a watered-down version of a bill to promote diversity among the government’s top civil servants.

Introduced by House Oversight and Government Reform Federal Workforce Subcommittee Chairman Danny Davis, D-Ill., the bill contains two mechanisms for addressing what some members consider under representation of minorities in the Senior Executive Service, which is comprised of about 6,500 of federal agencies’ highest ranking career employees.
