FedWire: Happy Tax Day

FedScoop’s afternoon roundup of news and notes from the federal IT community.

Happy Tax Day!

Hopefully, you are one of those people and if not, well, here is hoping you at least survived the day with enough quarters to get something off the McDonald’s dollar menu on the drive home.
