February 6, 2019 Press Release
Accountability matters – that’s why, along with my authorizing counterpart Rep. Raúl Grijalva, we are requesting the Government Accountability Office issue a formal opinion on the use of FLREA fees to pay for national parks operations during the shutdown. If this administration misused these funds and violated appropriations law, the American public deserves to know.
February 6, 2019 Press Release
As Members of the Appropriations Committee, we are charged with taking the lead in safeguarding that authority for all our colleagues. Ironically, the recent government shutdown has caused us to review the laws governing the use of taxpayer dollars and to reexamine what’s permissible and what’s not.
