The Whistleblowers Act Needs Your Help! September 18, 2008

Whistleblowers are essential to protecting the citizens in a democracy against waste, fraud, and abuse in government at all levels. Their reporting saves U.S. taxpayers both money and government integrity. But whistleblowers need protection themselves from reprisals. We thought they were going to get that protection in bills that were passed in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, but these bills haven’t been reconciled so they can’t be passed and made law.
Citizens should urge Congress to finish the job and provide protection for whistleblowers, so that they won’t suffer when they report abuse. Please write your Congressional Member in both the House and the Senate and ask them to get the bill passed before the recess. You can find their contact information at Congress.org.
Citizen action is powerful.
