BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. MORAN. Mr. Speaker, I don't oppose the bill, but I do have concerns about one element of this bill, and that is the provision that affects whistleblowers in the Public Health Service.

The law that would apply to these employees is that of the military, the Defense Department, which, frankly, is weaker than that which applies to protecting whistleblowers who are in the civil service, civilian whistleblowers.

I do think protection of whistleblowers needs to be a priority. In this case, I would hope that we could work in subsequent legislation to protect the rights of whistleblowers who are essential to our being able to do our job, as well as those people in the executive branch. I just wanted to make note of that point.
