Senator/House Rep Concerned about HHS Memo on Employees Contacting Congress

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) expressed grave concern over a May 3 memorandum memo from HHS Secretary Tom Price's chief of staff, Lance Leggitt, which instructed employees not to have "any communications" with members of Congress or their staffs without first consulting the department's assistant secretary for legislation. Senator Grassley and Red Chaffetz said the memo was "potentially illegal and unconstitutional" infringement on whistleblowers' rights to call attention to waste, fraud and abuse in the executive branch.

One of the advantages of being a member of the Federal Physician Association is that the Association has no restrictions in communicating with Congress and physicians who are members can contact Congress as a member and no as a government employee.
