Rep. Culberson Responds to VA Investigation on Orlando Conferences

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. John Culberson issued the following statement in response to the investigation into unauthorized spending by the Department of Veterans Affairs at two conferences in Orlando last year.

"Taxpayers are once again on the hook as a result of wasteful government spending," said Rep. Culberson. "A report from the Inspector General has revealed a clear misuse of tax dollars and serious lapses in judgment. As Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, I strongly encourage Secretary Shinseki to investigate VA practices and the lack of oversight that allowed such wasteful events to occur. I will continue reviewing the information provided by both the VA and the VA Office of Inspector General to ensure this abuse does not happen again."
