Yesterday Representatives Chris Van Hollen and Todd Platts did their job!  They sponsored a bipartisan amendment to include federal employee whistleblower protection in the stimulus package.  NOW it is incumbent upon all of us to do our part for whistleblower rights.   At 3:00 PM TODAY there will be a Rules Committee meeting to vote on amendments to the stimulus legislation.  This is the optimal time for Congress to pass meaningful whistleblower protection.  We must act now!

Take Action!  Sign the whistleblower protection petition and demand oversight and accountability from Congress!

Even if you have signed the petition before, it is critical that you take action now to tell the Rules Committee whistleblower protection must be included in the stimulus bill.  

Send your signed petition to the Rules Committee Now!

Once you have signed the petition, tell everyone you know  to demand whistleblower protection now!    

Over the years you have helped enhance whistleblower rights by taking action at crucial moments.  Today's vote is the culmination of your efforts.   You know that there can be no accountability as to how taxpayer dollars are spent without whistleblower protection.  We must make sure this amendment is included in the final stimulus package.  

Today's Rules Committee vote is critical, but the fight doesn't end today.  The final vote will be tomorrow so keep spreading the word  that whistleblower protection is essential for oversight and accountability.
