Tony Vergnetti is the President and Founder of Federal Employee Defense Services, Inc. (FEDS Protection) which has provided professional liability insurance coverage to the federal government employee and contractor community since 2007. He's literally the guy we go to for legal help when we're having issues. He discussed what OMB personnel and the rest of us should be watching/doing/thinking right now as some agencies move to implement the direction laid out in the Schedule F executive order. You can read the order here:

This week, Real Clear Politics published this article about a memo floating at OMB putting 88% of their personnel into schedule F. Personnel haven't been notified yet, but they're understandably concerned.
