Reps. Rice, Coffman, Speier & Blum Create House Whistleblower Protection Caucus

Bipartisan coalition will be dedicated to protecting whistleblowers’ rights and combating whistleblower retaliation

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representatives Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Mike Coffman (R-CO), Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Rod Blum (R-IA) today announced the formation of the bipartisan House Whistleblower Protection Caucus, an informal group of House Members dedicated to protecting the rights of whistleblowers, who often take on significant personal and professional risk in order to report improper activity in government agencies, help improve congressional oversight and transparency, and eliminate fraud, abuse and wasteful spending. The Caucus will work to build bipartisan support for strong whistleblower protections, raise awareness about retaliation against whistleblowers, and provide guidance to other House offices about how to respond to whistleblower disclosures and allegations of retaliation.

The House Whistleblower Protection Caucus has been endorsed by several organizations across the political and ideological spectrum, including the Project on Government Oversight (POGO), the Government Accountability Project (GAP), the Liberty Coalition, Public Citizen, the National Taxpayers Union, the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, and the Union of Concerned Scientists Center for Science and Democracy.
