Federal Whistleblower Protection Legislation

Last week we brought you highlights of a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight hearing about new whistleblower legislation. Federal News Radio’s Max Cacas was there and reported on the legislation. Bill Bransford is an attorney with Shaw, Bransford, Veilleux and Roth. He testified at the hearing as General Counsel for the Senior Executives Association; he talked to me today about the provisions of the bill, and the companion legislation being considered in the House.
