Whistleblower Protection Legislation Passes the House

May 7, 2019

The NCPBA was proud to be on hand today as HB 348 passed the House by a 115-1 vote. HB 348 as originally filed by Rep. Holly Grange, Rep. Debra Conrad, Representative Bobby Hanig, and Rep. Billy Richardson offered protections from retaliation for municipal police officers who report corruption. The bill passed through the Judiciary Committee and was later given a referral to the Rules Committee by Rep. Lewis after Rep. Faircloth and Rep. Allen McNeill offered a PCS (Proposed Committee Substitute) that would protect all municipal employees. The PBA wants to thank all of these legislators for their efforts with this critical piece of legislation.
