Countdown to WPEA is a new feature to MSPB Watch, which counts down until December 14, 2012, the day the House of Representatives adjourns for the year and the 112th Congress, 2nd Session ends (the Senate has not set an adjournment day). If the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act doesn’t pass by then, the advocacy will have to start over from square one in 2013. This feature monitors the airwaves for any last-minute developments.
As of today, there are 63 days remaining in the legislative session.
