Late breaking news  –  Update on Proposed Changes to CFC Regulations:

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) received more than 800 comments about the proposed changes to the CFC regulations and there is a Congressional Hearing scheduled for Wednesday, July 26th at 1:30 pm in the Rayburn House Office building to “Help Congress Better Understand the Impact of what OPM is proposing for the CFC.”

If you’re in the DC area, please plan on attending, if you’re in another part of the country or can’t attend, please contact your Representative to let them know the damaging impact the new regulations will have if adopted as proposed. lists addresses and phone numbers for all Members of Congress by name and by state, if needed.

To see my complete analysis of the proposed regulations, “Back to the Drawing Board! – An Analysis and Recommended Responses to the Proposed Changes to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Regulations” please go here:

I am reprinting it in its entirety the letter from the SavetheCFC coalition, organized by America’s Charities, please follow its directions for location and time of the hearing:

Hope to see you there!

Thank you for your great support to Save the CFC.        Many of you responded and submitted comments to the Federal Register and       to OPM and have worked with us to connect with key members of       Congress.  This combined effort resulted in nearly 800 comments       entered into the public record and almost 20 key visits to Congressional       offices.We are pleased to announce that your work, along with our       partner federations, to Save the CFC has resulted in a Congressional       Hearing scheduled for June 26, 2013.

Hearing       Date:  June 26, 2013
Hearing Subject:        To help Congress “better understand the impact” of what       OPM is proposing for the CFC
Location:  Rayburn       House Office Building, Room 2154
Time:  1:30       p.m.
Duration:  Approximately       60-90 minutes

We encourage you and others from your organization to       attend.
A large turnout will serve as a testament to the concerns held by many       nonprofit organizations. If you plan on attending the hearing, please let       us know by emailing Geoff Rixon at Also, please       allow time to go through security and locate the hearing room.

It is our understanding the hearing is informational in nature and will       allow key members of Congress to become familiar with the proposed       changes and the nonprofit sector’s concerns about them.  The hearing       is under the auspices of the Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service, and       Census Subcommittee chaired by Rep. Blake Farenthold (R., Tex.).  It       is a subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform       Committee.

Witnesses are being selected by the subcommittee staff, and we are active       in the process of making recommendations.  We anticipate witnesses       will include representatives of impacted charities, a member of the Save       the CFC federation coalition, OPM, and perhaps others.

Following the hearing we will report back to you and let you know what       actions to take.

If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Funnell at or Robyn Neal at

Thank you for helping us keep the CFC viable!
