SEA President Writes Senators Regarding “CR Hell,” Concern with Inclusion of VA Whistleblower Provision

In a September 27 letter, SEA President Bill Valdez wrote to all Senators expressing dismay “in the strongest terms possible” at the continued failure of Congress to fulfill its constitutional duty to pass a budget, noting the onerous imposition that continued preparation for each Continued Resolution (CR) has on agencies.

In a September 27 letter, SEA President Bill Valdez wrote to all Senators expressing dismay “in the strongest terms possible” at the continued failure of Congress to fulfill its constitutional duty to pass a budget, noting the onerous imposition that continued preparation for each Continued Resolution (CR) has on agencies.

The letter also voiced concern with a provision in Title II, Subchapter II of the CR that would establish a new, non-independent Central Whistleblower Office at the Department of Veterans Affairs. As VA already has its own independent OIG, there are grave concerns that a non-independent Central Whistleblower Office would facilitate retaliation and enable cover ups.

In addition, SEA signed onto a September 27 joint press release with the Project on Government Oversight, Government Accountability Project, and the Public Citizen, expressing concern with the provision, and the press release contains an extended quote from SEA President Bill Valdez on the issue.
