Mica says there could be 70 GSA conferences to examine for waste
House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman John Mica (R-Fla.) said Tuesday that there could be as many as 70 more conferences held by the General Services Administration (GSA) that his committee could need to examine for waste and abuse.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here* and suggest: no, Mr. Chairman, you don’t have to “examine” each of seventy conferences. You have to examine why they’re having so many conferences in the first place!
GSA responded to Mica on Tuesday by saying that the 70 conferences in question took place between 2005 and 2011, and that GSA has provided information about these conferences to the Office of the Inspector General, and has continued to provide information to Congress “as issues are uncovered.”
Ten conferences per year?
* See what I did there?
