Protect the Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program from being Gutted

President Donald Trump and Congressional GOP leaders are now aiming to dismantle the Dodd-Frank Act, and the SEC’s whistleblower program along with it. The SEC’s program, the Office of the Whistleblower, is without question one of the most effective whistleblower programs in the country.

In a memo, Chairman Jeb Hensarling of the House Financial Services Committee announced his intention to cut down major parts of the Dodd-Frank Act. The leaked memo specifically recommends that Congress re-define who can blow the whistle in a manner that will gut the law.. This comes on the back of President Trump ordering the Treasury Department to review the law, also with an eye toward dismantling it.

Take action now to demand Congress and the President protect the SEC Whistleblower Office and support accountability for corporations.
