Foxx legislation becomes law, saves taxpayers millions

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx’s “Electronic Paystub” legislation has been signed into law .  Her bill, the Electronic Pay Stub Act, ensures that all federal employees are given the option of receiving their pay stubs electronically.  The legislation has the potential to save the federal government millions of dollars each year and will ensure federal workers’ pay stubs are delivered faster and more securely. 


“This law is a common sense step that will save taxpayer dollars, reduce waste and help federal employees keep their identities secure,” Foxx said.  “This legislation gives every federal employee the opportunity to receive their pay stub via a secure web site instead of in the mail.  It will save millions in taxpayer dollars, dramatically reduce paper consumption and reduce the risk of identity theft for federal employees.”


The Electronic Pay Stub Act, or H.R. 6073, is the second substantive bill authored by Foxx to become law.  Her first bill, the HERO Act, was signed into law on Memorial Day 2006.  The HERO Act changed IRS law to allow members of the armed services to save for retirement by investing their combat pay into Individual Retirement Accounts.
