The Commission will consider whether to adopt amendments to the Commission's rules implementing its whistleblower program. The proposed amendments are intended to clarify the Commission's discretion, enhance claim processing efficiency, and otherwise address specific issues that have developed during the whistleblower program's eight year history. The Commission will also consider whether to adopt interpretive guidance concerning the terms "unreasonable delay" and "independent analysis" in the Commission's rules implementing its whistleblower program.
