House lawmakers are pushing forward plans to change annual cost-of-living adjustments for federal retirees in more ways than one.

For one, the familiar Equal COLA Act, which Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) reintroduced, would change how the annual cost-of-living adjustment, commonly called the COLA, is calculated for the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS).
