President Obama signed legislation Tuesday that affords greater protection to federal employees who expose fraud, waste and abuse in government operations.
The chamber doesn't plan to vote on the so-called heartbeat bill before the end of the legislative session next month, Republican Senate President Thomas E. Niehaus said, citing concerns the resulting law might have been found to be unconstitutional.
Mr. Niehaus, who is leaving the Senate at the end of the year due to term limits, said a number of factors went into his decision not to bring the bill to a floor vote during the lame-duck session.
