The 461-page rule comes on the heels of HHS sending its annual report to Congress. HHS says it returned more than $4 billion to the government and prosecuted 726 defendants. Federal News Radio’s Jason Miller says this shows the accomplishments of the interagency task force and how the new rule will improve the recovery processes. Listen to the full story tomorrow morning on the Federal Drive.
  • President Obama says taking care of military families shouldn’t just be the job of DoD and the Veterans Administration. At the White House today, he laid out a plan to get agencies across the government committed to supporting the families of those who serve.
  • Former E-gov administrators Mark Forman and Karen Evans joined In Depth host Francis Rose about the latest efforts in cybersecurity, and their reactions to OMB’s 25-point plan.
