Mandating the Existing Electronic Pay-Stub Option
It makes perfect sense to give federal employees the option of receiving pay stubs electronically, doesn’t it? So much sense, in fact, that they already can. From the Congressional Budget Office analysis of the bill:
CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 6073 would have no effect on the federal budget because, according to [the Office of Personnel Management], all federal employees already have this option.
There must be more to the story, but it looks like Congress is considering a law to mandate the existing electronic pay-stub option. Seems like there are better things it could be doing.
