Neal, D-Mass., House Worker and Family Support Subcommittee Chairman Danny K. Davis, D-Ill., and House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md, urged Saul that, “as Commissioner of Social Security provides an opportunity for the agency to wipe the slate and start fresh with the federal employee unions, including by reversing SSA’s actions to implement the controversial and unprecedented provisions of the Executive Orders.”
