Issa to Lead Republicans on Key Oversight Committee

We were very pleased this week to see California Republican Congressman Darrel Issa named to the key position of Ranking Member on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is responsible for conducting oversight of the Executive Branch and other parts of the federal government. This is a key post for the San Diego-area Congressman.

In commenting on is appointment, Congressman Issa said, "While objective and bipartisan hearings are a priority for Republicans, the minority will not tolerate inappropriately partisan hearings or investigations...We also stand ready to pro-actively probe any critical failures of government neglected by the Committee majority."

In other words, Issa and his team are ready to ask the difficult questions members of the majority may be reluctant to pose to officials of a Democrat Administration. That's exactly the right message to send.
