Your Federal Government
We are delighted to share details of an exciting new project that we launched earlier this year - a new Cable TV Series called - "YOUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT". The primary goal of this series is to tell the good government story by disseminating information to the public about what each federal agency does and the good work that Federal employees do. We are delighted that the shows are being distributed to local cable access stations across the Commonwealth.
