Senate Committee markup on WPEA is tomorrow

The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee has scheduled its markup of the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (S. 372) for tomorrow, 10:00 a.m. Now is the time to contact your Senators and President Obama and ask them to support adding jury trials for all federal employees, including national security employees. The House bill (HR 1507) is superior in both respects. Sen. McCaskill plans to introduce an amendment to S. 372 to improve it on these issues. The National Whistleblowers Center has launched a Capwiz action page to support these improvements to S. 372, and a twitter page to follow developments at the markup. NWC General Counsel David K. Colapinto will provide his expert analysis and commentary on how the Senate markups affect the strength of the whistleblower protections in this legislation. You can also catch the live video feed from the Committee when it meets tomorrow. Please pass this message on to your friends and family. We need the Senate and President Obama to know that the American public wants all federal employees to be protected when they report waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars.
