Sen. Grassley seeks to further protect whistleblowers

Sen. Grassley, who co-sponsored the 1986 amendments to the False Claims Act, has introduced a bill to further protect whistleblowers.  Here is an excerpt from his press release:
Senator Chuck Grassley has co-sponsored legislation to provide a much needed update to the Whistleblower Protection Act by restoring congressional intent of the original law. Grassley said that whistleblowers are being denied the protections they should have under the law because of decisions of the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and the general anti-whistleblower sentiment held by those in executive branch agencies.
