Hatch Act Amended
Posted On: Jan 23, 2013
Working with the bipartisan team of Senator Dan Akaka (D-HI) and Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), the IAFF secured passage of legislation repealing a federal law that prohibits fire fighters from running for political office if their employer received federal funds. The Hatch Act bars political activity by federal workers, but one provision extends this restriction to state and local government employees whose jobs involve duties that are funded with federal grants, including the FIRE Act and SAFER grant programs.

While some fire fighters will remain covered by similar state restrictions, often referred to as “mini-Hatch Acts,” municipal fire fighters will no longer be barred from seeking office under federal law.
