H.R. 5387 Would Extend Social Security Coverage to Railroad Workers
(Posted November 9, 2000)
Question 69: Has anyone heard about H.R. 5387 which was introduced on
October 3 & would put Rail workers under Social Security? Please alert everyone who may be impacted by its passage.
Answer: I am posting your question to spread the word.
Thanks for your timely alert. Congress will adjourn very soon so action on this bill in this session is not probable. But it brears watching when the new Congress convenes in January.
