Organizations Rally to Restore Federal Whistleblower Rights
Last week, 112 diverse organizations rallied together to persuade leading U.S. Senate and House officials to enact stronger protections for federal employee whistleblowers. The coalition, led by the Government Accountability Project and the Project on Government Oversight, delivered a letter to legislators advocating prompt reconciliation of the House and Senate versions of whistleblower protection legislation that were enacted in March 2007 and December 2007. The letter also emphasized the need for stronger whistleblower protections, including the right to a jury trial and expansion of protections to scientists and national security whistleblowers.
