FRNs, Treasury 2 year floating rate notes

        An article at Fidelity (https://www.fidelity.com/insights/marke ... bt-debates) indicates the treasury will sell 2 year floating rate notes (FRN) starting in January. Any thoughts if they would be as safe as 1 year STT bills in the cash potion of the PP.
