Summary

The bill: establishes a framework to encourage and facilitate reporting of wrongdoing by public officials in the Commonwealth public sector; ensures that Commonwealth agencies properly investigate and respond to public interest disclosures; provides protections to public officials who make qualifying public interest disclosures; and provides for a review of the operation of the Act after two years.
