On Thursday, the House Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government-Sponsored Enterprises passed a bill that severely weakens protection for whistleblowers. The bill requires the whistleblower to confront the company in question first before going to a regulatory agency. Then the agency would notify the entity being accused of wrong-doing before any enforcement action is taken. Also it would legalize retaliation by the company against the whistle blowing employee. Peter Van Buren, author of We Meant Well, joins us to take a closer look at the rights of whistleblowers and how they've changed through the years.
