Protect the Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program from being Gutted

The House of Representatives will vote TODAY on the Financial CHOICE Act, a bill set up to repeal major parts of the Dodd-Frank Act. The Financial CHOICE Act specifically targets Wall Street whistleblowers. The stakes here are incredibly high. The Securities and Exchange Commission is the prime Wall Street watchdog and its whistleblower program is the most effective tool to uncover and prosecute violations of securities law.
If we lose this program Wall Street fraud and corruption will run unleashed. This disastrous bill is headed for a vote on the floor today!
We need you to urge your Representative in the House to vote against the Financial CHOICE Act due to its toxic anti-whistleblower policies, and to urge your Senators to remove Section 828 if it is passed in the House.
To understand this issue in greater depth, please read NWC Executive Director Stephen Kohn’s testimony before the House Financial Services Committee here (the testimony refers to section 823 of the discussion draft, this section was changed to section 828 in the currrent version of the Financial CHOICE Act).
Take action! Demand Congress protect the SEC Whistleblower Office and support holding corporations accountable.
