Whistleblower Thanks

One voice can make all the difference!
HISTORIC VICTORY FOR WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTION Jane Turner Whistleblower - Google Search House Overwhelmingly Approves Whistleblower Enhancement Act Senate Action Needed to Finish the Job

Washington, DC, March 14, 2007. Today, by a vote of 331 to 94, The House of Representatives passed the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (H.R. 985). The Enhancment Act is the first major reform of federal whistleblower laws in 18 years, and cures numerous weaknesses in existing legislation. The Enhancement Act will:

  • For the first time, provide most federal employees with a right to have their claims heard in federal court;
  • Protect most federal employees who expose waste fraud and corruption through their chain of command;
  • Provide a new remedy for federal contractors who expose fraud on the taxpayers

Stephen Kohn, the President of the National Whistleblower Center, issued the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 985:

“This is a historic victory for oversight and accountability. For the first time in 18 years, Congress is getting serious about protecting Federal employee-whistleblowers. The House has taken the first step in passing…. It is now up to the Senate to get the job done. We fully expect that at the end of the day that Congress will pass, and the President will sign, effective whistleblower protections; we will accept nothing less."

Dear Friend:

Thank You. The attached press release speaks for itself. In the last few days, hundreds of letters poured into Congressional offices from whistleblower supporters like you, and they truly made a difference. We got a good law approved by the House, but that means that our work is only half done.

We now need to redouble our efforts in the Senate. It is vital that in thweeks to come, we urge Senators to make sure that the final law is truly effective for all Federal employees; for this, we will again be asking for your help and support.

Again, thank you so much for your help now and in the future,

Michael Kohn
