The Association of National Park Rangers extends its full support to passage of the Land Management Workforce Flexibility Act (H.R. 533)
and encourages all association members to contact their respective congressional representatives to request their support to advance this legislation.
This is an extremely positive development for the National Park Service and all federal agencies that annually hire and employ seasonal employees. It provides a logical hiring authority to officially select employees who through their training, irreplaceable work experience, and demonstrated job performance have established their value to the agency.
We will update the status of this bill as it becomes available. Even though the prognosis is that the bill will not get out of committee, ANPR wants to start building support and show Congress that people are interested in this proposed legislation.
