A lot of people in the U.S. are hoping the end of Donald Trump’s presidency will usher in a period of more transparency in the way people receive appointments and appointments are made in the federal government.
A lot, indeed.
A number of organizations are calling for a national appointment registry to be put into place to help ensure people are getting the appointments they need.
That includes a number of conservative groups that are pushing for a constitutional amendment to replace the current appointment system with a federal system.
The Texas State Bar Association says the federal appointment system is an important tool to ensure that the state of Texas is providing quality appointments to all of its employees, not just to some.
The group’s Executive Director of Government Affairs, Jeff Bock, says the current system has failed to meet the needs of Texas’ economy and has led to job shortages in the state.
“I think we’re a very good state, we have a very productive economy,” Bock told CBC News in an interview last week.
“We have a lot of skilled people in Texas.
Bock said it’s also important for people to know who is appointed to appointments in Texas because appointments can have significant effects on people’s lives.””
And now we’re seeing this issue of the appointment process that we have in Texas, that we need an appointment system.”
Bock said it’s also important for people to know who is appointed to appointments in Texas because appointments can have significant effects on people’s lives.
“People that are in the workforce and are getting that job can be impacted by appointments, especially in areas where the workforce is shrinking,” he said.
Bocks’ group, which is led by a former U.N. ambassador, says appointments should be made through an independent process that can include not only the person filling the position, but also the other people who will be working on the appointment.
There are currently no formal rules that would require federal appointees to disclose their credentials to people applying for jobs, Bock said.
“But we’re working to get those rules in place,” he added.
Texas currently requires that any appointee applying for a federal position must be a U.C.L.A. graduate or have a master’s degree.
While some federal employees are already allowed to be reimbursed for their own travel and accommodation expenses, Bocks said the idea is that it would be possible to have an independent vetting process that could also allow people who work in public offices to get paid by the federal public servants.
“We’re going to try to make sure that we don’t just let this be a process that doesn’t work, but it’s a process for all of our people,” Bocks added.
The group is currently holding a conference call Tuesday to gather feedback on the proposed appointment registry.
If it is passed, the group says it would look into what types of people could be eligible for appointments under the proposed system.
