Not criticizing you, but that's not really super specific. It clarifies for people with start dates before Feb 22, but doesn't say anything about what will happen to people with later start dates, because of all the language giving discretion to agency heads (that is, are they going to use that discretion? Are criminal AUSAs exempted for public safety/national security? Does it depend on the office?). Sigh.
