Hill offered the amendment as a follow up to Sen. John Boozman’s (R-AR) and his request to the VA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to investigate the VA’s Renewable Energy Program. After Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Subcommittee Chairman Charlie Dent (R-PA) offered to assist with Rep. Hill’s and Sen. Boozman’s call for an OIG investigation, Rep. Hill withdrew his amendment.
Hill said, “It is essential that we ensure accountability and transparency when utilizing precious taxpayer dollars to support these government projects. Many questions remain unanswered about the project in Little Rock and similar projects throughout the country, and I am pleased that the Committee is willing to work with me to ensure additional oversight from Congress.”
