WASHINGTON — 

AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement regarding Senator Elizabeth Warren’s proposed anti-corruption bill:

“AFSCME applauds Senator Warren’s continued leadership on the critical need to restore balance to our federal government in favor of hardworking families who struggle every day to get ahead. We appreciate her efforts to strengthen public trust in a government that serves all the people, not just an entrenched wealthy few who enjoy outsized influence in today’s Washington. We look forward to our continued work with her to root out corruption and conflicts of interest, ensure a regulatory process that protects the broad public good, and lift up the hard-working men and women of our career civil service with fair pay and the ability to conduct the people’s business free from the political influence of a handful of billionaires.”
