Whistleblower Hearing Today

From the National Whistleblower Coalition:

The Senate is holding a hearing on the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act today. The public hearing will be held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 342 at 2:30 PM. Please attend if you are in the DC area or you can watch live online by clicking here.

Now is the time to make your voice heard! If you have not sent an email to Congress send it now! Call Senators Daniel Akaka (202) 224-6361 and Susan Collins (202) 224-2523, the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, and tell them that all federal employees, including those who report misconduct in national security and defense, must have whistleblower protection with full court access.

During the campaign, President Obama pledged to support effective legislation that would protect all federal employees with a guaranteed right to federal court access. Please urge the Senate to back up this promise.

Today is the day to send an action alert. Today it is imperative to pass this alert on to a friend or co-worker so the Senate can hear form the public while they are debating the scope of the law.

Thank you for your continued support.
