Whistleblower Reso Advances

In addition to the coverage in today's NY Sun, yesterday's press conference in support of a city council resolution that urges the US Senate to pass the King amendment, the measure that protects whistle blowers who report suspicious activity, also received good notice in today's SI Advance.

The Advance points out that all three of the SI members have signed on to the bill and that Vito Fosella, the congressman from the Island, is a strong supporter of the measure. In addition, John Catsimatidis' presence at the press conference, and his potential role as Republican mayoral candidate in 2009, is mentioned.

What needs to be done now, is for the reso's supporters to push Speaker Quinn to hold hearings on the measure in the Council's State and Federal Legislation Committee. So far, there is no indication of where Quinn stands on this important homeland security question.
