Committee to Examine VA Spending



 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Wednesday, November 28, 2012, at 10:15 a.m., in Room 334 of the Cannon House Office Building, the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs will hold a hearing entitled, "VA Conference Spending and Accountability." The Committee will specifically examine the lack of answers and information received from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) concerning conference spending over the past four years. VA has estimated that is spends anywhere from $20-$100 million a year on conferences, one of which was recently under investigation by VA's Office of the Inspector General. The investigation uncovered exorbitant waste, lack of accountability, and resulted in at least one senior VA official resignation.
