Excerpt from S. 1794-Congressional, Presidential, and Judicial Pension Forfeiture Act: Hearing Before the Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session on S. 1794
Chairman stevens. S. 1794, the Congressional, Presidential, and Judicial Pension Forfeiture Act, amends current law regarding the forfeiture of a Federal pension upon conviction of certain offenses. It expands the current list of offenses which trigger pension forfeit ure. Under this bill, an individual convicted of any of these offenses would forfeit a pension if the individual is a Member of Congress, congressional staff, the President or Vice President, or a member of the Federal judiciary at the time the offense was committed.
Under current law, Federal employees, Members of Congress, and members of the Uniformed Services are deprived of pensions or retiree pay if they are convicted of specific crimes related to dis loyalty to the United States or threats to the national security and national defense. This bill, introduced by Mr. Gregg, expands those provisions.
