Wolf Statement In Response To Holder Letter

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) issued the following statement in response to a letter yesterday from Attorney General Eric Holder:

"With all due respect to the attorney general, as chairman of the Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations subcommittee, I know that all of the funds spent last year to acquire Thomson -- over the direct objections of Congress -- could have instead been used to alleviate furloughs this year. The department used $14 million from Bureau of Prisons operational accounts and $151 million from the Assets Forfeiture Fund to purchase Thomson Prison. Every dollar of those amounts could have instead been made available this year through reprogramming to mitigate furlough impacts. Instead, the department has had to raid funds from FBI and U.S. Marshals Service operational accounts to prevent furloughs now. These law enforcement agencies are now literally paying the price for that misguided decision."
