Rep. Farenthold Examines IG Reforms to Cut Wasteful Spending
March 5, 2013
At an Oversight and Government Reform hearing on Tuesday, Rep. Farenthold questioned why the Obama Administration has failed to implement IG recommendations that would save taxpayers billions of dollars. In January 2009, former Chairman Waxman found that federal agencies could have saved taxpayers nearly $26 billion by implementing open IG recommendations. Today, there are 16,906 unimplemented recommendations worth more than $66 billion to taxpayers.
