Improved whistle blower bill headed to President's desk

Hanford whistle blower protections against fraud, waste and mismanagement will be expanded under a bill headed to the president’s desk for his approval.

Sponsored by Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, the bill would beef up protections to nearly all contractors and subcontractors for federal projects.

It also prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to reimburse companies for legal fees incurred to defend themselves from whistleblower retaliation.
