Committee, Minus Vallone, Supports Weingarten's Measure

A whistleblower protection bill supported for so long by UFT president Randi Weingarten easily passed the City Council’s Education Committee early today.

The bill had exactly one opponent on the committee, Peter Vallone, Jr.

His explanation: “Very strong whistleblower protection laws already exist.”

The bill comes up for a vote in front of the full Council tomorrow.
