NAAUSA has joined the other members of the Federal-Postal Coalition to urge Congress to end the automatic budget cuts (sequestration) that will further reduce the FY 2014 budget for the United States Attorney Offices.

NAAUSA asks all House Members to vote "No" on H.R. 2711, the Citizen Empowerment Act, which would allow individuals to record in-person and telephonic interactions with AUSAs.  NAAUSA urges Members to vote "No" on the legislation because it will undermine federal civil enforcement activities and criminal prosecutions during the investigative, pretrail and enforcement phases of litigation involving the interests of the United States.

NAAUSA has written to the Chair of the Attorney General's Advisory Committee to urge them to work with other DOJ components to eliminate the disparity in pay between AUSAs and DOJ Trial Attorneys.  After five years as a DOJ attorney, current DOJ attorney pay policy allows a Trial Attorney to be paid as much as $30,000 more than an AUSA.


The National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys (NAAUSA) is the voice of Assistant United States Attorneys in the Department of Justice and Congress helping safeguard justice and promoting the interests of AUSAs.
