Public Service Federal Eligibility Protection Act of 2017
This bill extends the eligibility for non-competitive appointment of any individual provided under Executive Order 11103 (relating to non-competitive appointment of eligible Peace Corps volunteers) or Executive Order 12721 (relating to non-competitive appointment of certain overseas employees), or of a VISTA volunteer under the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, by the number of days that such eligibility coincides with any federal hiring freeze.
