A Victory for Oversight: House Passes Eshoo Amendment

May 28, 2010 


Late yesterday, the House passed an amendment allowing the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to audit the intelligence community.

POGO views this as a great victory for government oversight. POGO thanks Representative Anna Eshoo (D-CA) for her leadership on this issue, and also thanks the other co-sponsors—Howard Berman (D-CA), Rush Holt (D-WV), Mike Thompson (D-CA), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and John Tierney (D-MS)—for supporting this important amendment. POGO also thanks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for supporting and speaking in favor of the bill.
