PALIKIR, Pohnpei (FSM Information Service): November 20, 1997 - President Jacob Nena, on November 6, 1997, transmitted to Congress Speaker Jack Fritz for action a proposed amendment to the 1998 National Government Budget Act.
The proposed amendment seeks to facilitate part-time into employment ceiling for Postal Services in order that such employees may participate in the Early Retirement Program if they are inclined.
