House Whistleblower Protection Caucus

The bipartisan House Whistleblower Protection Caucus was launched on April 26, 2016. The Caucus aims to build bipartisan support for strong whistleblower protections, raise awareness about retaliation against whistleblowers, and provide guidance to other House offices about how to respond to whistleblower disclosures and allegations of retaliation.

The Caucus has played a supportive role in the establishment and continuity of the House Office of the Whistleblower Ombuds.

  • On March 10, 2020, Caucus Chairs Jackie Speier, Mark Meadows and Kathleen Rice sent a letter in support of FY2021 funding for the Office. The letter can be viewed here.
