Thanks to You, Congressional Leaders Have Gotten the Message!

Thanks to all of our supporters who have taken action by contacting your elected officials demanding increased whistleblower protections, a whistleblower bill for federal employees has been introduced in the House of Representatives! This bill, The Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2007, is a good first step.


As you may remember from those previous Alerts, in May 2006 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that public employees could not claim First Amendment protection when they voice concerns to their supervisors. That decision, in Garcetti v. Ceballos, was absolutely detrimental to the over 21 million public employees who rely on the First Amendment as their sole means of whistleblower protection.

In the nine months since that decision, The National Whistleblower Center staff has worked in coalition with other groups and House leaders in the Committee on Government Reform, including Representative Henry Waxman, to find a way to remedy the Court’s misguided opinion. Board Chair Stephen Kohn testified at the committee hearings entitled "What Price Free Speech?" During which the ramifications of the Ceballos decision was discussed. Click to read the testimony

This week…

All of the hard work has begun to pay off! On Monday, Representative Waxman, along with other leaders from the committee introduced whistleblower legislation designed to protect federal employees. This legislation accomplishes three goals:

• It will create procedures for Federal employee whistleblowers to have their cases heard in Federal Court, in jury trials.

• It will close the loopholes which have prevented National Security Whistleblowers from obtaining protections.

• It will legislatively overturn the Supreme Court’s Garcetti v. Ceballos decision, which prevented Government whistleblowers from obtaining First Amendment protection when they reported concerns “internally” through their chain of command.

Please Continue to Help!

The staff here at the Center vows to continue to work in coalition with other groups and with House leaders to ensure that this bill passes in a form that will truly protect all federal employees, but we need your support. Please check your e-mail inbox and our website in the coming days for a chance to sign the NWC's online petition. By signing the petition, you are letting your elected officials know that you support laws that give all whistleblowers the Freedom to Tell the Truth.

Thank you,

NWC Staff
