Congress is waiting for President Barack Obama to sign legislation to make it easier for intelligence agency employees and contractors to blow the whistle. Some advocates say this is landmark legislation that would close a major loophole. Right now, intelligence workers have little job or legal protection when they report waste, fraud or abuse. Civil Rights Attorney Lynne Bernabei has represented federal whistleblowers. She joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss if the law really helps.

The Supreme Court stands by the government's expansion of federal jobs deemed sensitive to national security. A few weeks ago, the high court refused to hear an appeal in a case stemming from the demotion of a Defense Department employee. He managed a commissary and did not have access to classified information or a security clearance. But the government considered his job "sensitive," barring him from appealing the demotion to the Merit Systems Protection Board. Attorney Lynne Bernabei told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what the court's decision means for all federal employees.
