HR 5895 Requiring a Semi-Annual Financial Audit of the GAO and the Mueller Investigation (Roll Call 254)
The Meadows (R-NC, ACUF Lifetime 95.2%) amendment to the energy and water appropriations bill requires a semi-annual financial audit of the expenditures of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) of Independent Counsels, including the expenditures of the Robert Mueller investigation. The department previously underwent financial audits but the provision of law requiring audits was repealed in 2010. ACU supports close oversight of the expenditure of all taxpayer funds and efforts to increase government accountability and supported this bill. The House passed the amendment on June 8, 2018 by a vote of 207-201.
