Key Whistleblower Oversight Provisions Should Not Be Cut From the Final Stimulus Bill
WASHINGTON - February 11 - Key whistleblower oversight and accountability provisions should not be removed from the stimulus legislation. The Platts/Van Hollen amendment to the House version of the stimulus bill would extend meaningful whistleblower protections to all federal employees and it should be included in the stimulus bill.
"It would be a shame if Congress passed a massive stimulus spending bill without meaningful protections for all employees who are responsible for protecting taxpayer money, " said Stephen M. Kohn, President National Whistleblowers Center.
"Congress must meet the public's demand for oversight and accountability," added Kohn. "Congress must immediately pass whistleblower protections so that employees are not afraid to report waste, fraud and abuse."
