Ranking Member Issa Responds to Majority Staff Report on Unimplemented IG Recommendations

January 6, 2009

Washington, DC – Rep. Darrell Issa issued the following statement on the Unimplemented IG Recommendations issued today by Democratic Staff:

“It is regrettable that as a parting partisan shot on his last day, Chairman Waxman has issued a report without the input or consultation of Oversight and Government Reform Committee Republicans. The report, however, ignores his own party’s backyard.

“This partisan report completely ignores IG recommendations made during the Clinton Administration. Chairman Waxman’s comments also, erroneously, place the responsibility for implementing IG recommendations for the Capitol Police at the feet of the President of the United States when that responsibility rests ultimately at the feet of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid.   According to this Democrat Staff Report, over two-thirds of IG recommendations to the Capitol Police have not been implemented.

“I look forward to working with Chairman Towns, on a bipartisan basis, in the 111th Congress to examine in more detail these important IG recommendations that have not yet been implemented.”
