SAVE Award

The SAVE Award encourages federal employees to come up with ways the government can "cut waste, save money and boost performance." The winner gets to present his or her idea in person to President Obama at the White House. Melissa Block speaks with two of the finalists: Marjorie Cook, a USDA food inspector, and Paul Behe, a paralegal specialist for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
