Senate passes Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act

The Senate passed the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2011 (S 743) by unanimous consent. The American Library Association supported this bill because it ensures the American public’s Right to Know, a value of libraries. The bill would expand the scope of whistleblower protections in the federal government, including the employees of the Transportation Security Agency (TSA). The bill has now been passed on to the House, where there is already a companion bill, HR 3289, which is co-sponsored by Congressmen Cummings and Van Hollen.

Feel free to thank both Senators for the passage of this bill, particularly Senator Cardin, who co-sponsored the bill.
