Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) will retire in December after 23 years of service, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.
Jason Miller writes Moran has been a ranking member of the Appropriations Interior Subcommittee and a senior member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.
The lawmaker has worked to change the process of hiring and retaining federal workers, to protect pay hikes for employees and enhance the Senior Executive Service, according to the report.
Moran is the author of several laws that authorize federal employees to count their unused sick leave in addition to work years upon retirement, as well as to retire under a phased program, the station reports.
Miller writes Moran has also worked to defend federal employee rights.
He served as Alexandria city mayor before becoming Virginia’s representative to Congress in 1990, Federal News Radio reports.
