Abstract : This report is an analytical case history of the passage of HSA, focused on the personnel management section. It includes a review of the recent history of civil service reform, a chronology of the major events leading up to passage of the legislation, and a detailed examination of the rhetorical framing of the debate over the legislation, which we conclude offers a powerful explanation for the passage of the legislation.
