Bipartisan Support For MacLean's Actions Submitted Into The Congressional Record

U.S. Congressman Edolphus Towns from New York thanks MacLean for his actions:

We have heard from dozens of whistleblowers who support this bill. I want to acknowledge one in particular. Mr. Robert, MacLean is a former Federal Air Marshal who, was fired after disclosing a threat to aviation, safety. Mr. MacLean's case has been lingering, for far too long under the current system. He, has championed this bill because he knows, first hand that the current system is broken. I, thank him for his efforts on behalf of the country.

Mr. Calvert:
"Madam Speaker, I rise today to discuss the article titled 'Did Fired OC Air Marshal Endanger Flying Public, or Protect It?'" The article was posted online on May 8, 2009 and I believe my colleagues in Congress will benefit from the article and the topic of whistleblower protection.

Famous quotes containing the words record, submitted, support and/or actions:

    When our kids are young, many of us rush out to buy a cute little baby book to record the meaningful events of our young child’s life...But I’ve often thought there should be a second book, one with room to record the moral milestones of our child’s lives. There might be space to record dates she first shared or showed compassion or befriended a new student or thought of sending Grandma a get-well card or told the truth despite its cost.
    Fred G. Gosman (20th century)

    The universal soul is the alone creator of the useful and the beautiful; therefore to make anything useful or beautiful, the individual must be submitted to the universal mind.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    As soon as we exceed average human goodness by even a single step, our actions arouse suspicion. Virtue stands steadily “in the middle.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
