Today, Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller, R-MI, issued the following statement after the independent Office of Inspector General (OIG) released the U.S. House of Representatives' Financial Statement Audit reporting a clean opinion for 2012:
"I'm proud to report that the House has received a clean audit. Prior to 2009, the House had received clean opinions for eleven consecutive years. However in 2009 and 2010, due to a lack of internal controls, the House took a step backwards and received two years of adverse opinions.
"The commitment by Chief Administrative Officer Dan Strodel and his team to take the necessary actions to restore the House's good financial standing is to be commended.
"I applaud Mr. Strodel for his dedication to this institution and for his hard work to maintain the highest standards of accountability that American taxpayers expect and deserve."
