Government Accountability Project | October 2, 2023
Dear Majority Leader Schumer, Minority Leader McConnell, Speaker McCarthy, and Minority Leader Jeffries,
The undersigned 163 organizations committed to good government principles across political affiliations are united by our desire for accountability for taxpayer-funded government activities. We support credible free speech rights for whistleblowers who expose fraud, waste of funds or abuse of authority in federal spending. Whistleblowers serve as the public’s eyes and ears. However, the erosion of whistleblower rights amid the surge in government spending is deeply concerning, and we call on Congress to take urgent action.
