More on Accountability

January 16, 2019 Press Release
I am thrilled for the opportunity to serve on these committees and what it means for our ability to represent the people of North Carolina with diligence and principle. The security, education and workforce of Americans are all issues intimately linked to our nation’s future.
December 22, 2018 Press Release
The existence of a secret hush fund that uses taxpayer money to settle sexual misconduct from members of Congress highlights exactly why people don’t trust Washington. That’s why we are ending it. From now on, members of Congress will be held accountable for their misbehavior, just like every other American.
December 21, 2018 Press Release
The Good Accounting Obligation in Government (GAO-IG) Act would stop wasteful spending in federal agencies and bring needed accountability using GAO and IG reports, potentially saving taxpayers at least $87 billion. 
September 26, 2018 Press Release
"Federal agencies are using veiled actions to circumvent the normal rule-making process, greatly costing North Carolina families and employers with compliance burdens and wasted time navigating a bureaucratic nightmare. Every dollar and hour blown managing this is an opportunity lost, a job not created, and investment not going into our community.”

May 9, 2018 Press Release
Rescissions aren’t merely a Republican political maneuver against Democrats. President Clinton used the process 166 times to save more than $3.5 billion. While effective, the most recent package sent by President Trump is especially innocuous, politically speaking, clawing back unneeded, unspent funds, some of which were appropriated as far back as 1993.
April 18, 2018 Press Release
"The bureaucratic failures of the IRS were on full display yesterday as they were unable to perform even a basic duty on their most critical day of the year. Another way the IRS is failing North Carolina taxpayers is with lack of accountability. Run for almost a decade by Commissioners who spent more time misleading Congress and attempting to bury scandals than they did serving Americans, the IRS has operated under a different set of rules than what they expect from taxpayers. The Ditto Act forces accountability on the IRS and ensures that they are working under the same rules as the people and businesses of North Carolina."
