Whistleblower Protection Bill Signed Into Law

This morning, VSEA Associate General Counsel Rebecca McBroom (pictured here speaking to reporters) was proud to attend the Governor’s official signing ceremony of the “Whistleblower Protection Bill.”

McBroom said VSEA is hopeful the legislation will cause more and more state and public employees to begin reporting waste, fraud and corruption.

Also joining the Governor for the signing was State Auditor Doug Hoffer, who drafted and championed the legislation. Following the signing, a FOX44 reporter asked the Governor about the status of VSEA whistleblower John Howe’s investigation and his lawsuit against the State. He answered “we absolutely do not condone retaliation.” FOX44 will be talking with John Howe later this afternoon for its piece on the whistleblower bill signing.
