Openness Community Urges Rep. Issa to Continue Whistleblower Bill Support

POGO – the Project On Government Oversight – organized several coalition partners, including to send a letter to Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) urging him to not delay passage of Whistleblower Protection Act after he indicated he would hold up the bill in a story run by the Washington Post. The bill passed the House unanimously on December 22, but ultimately died in the 111th Congress when a secret hold prevented the bill from being voted on in the Senate.
