House Receives Clean Opinion in FY 2014 Financial Audit

2015/05/20

WASHINGTON – Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller (R-MI) issued the following statement after the House’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) released the U.S. House of Representatives’ Financial Statement Audit reporting a clean opinion for fiscal year 2014:

“I am proud to announce that the House of Representatives has received a clean audit for fiscal year 2014.  Under the strong leadership of Speaker John Boehner, and with the professionalism of the entire House operations team, especially the Office of the House Inspector General and the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, the House continues to remain in good financial standing.  Many enhancements have been made over the years and there will always be areas for improvement, but together the House and all of the support offices have worked hard to move this institution forward.  This independent financial audit allows for constant improvement and strengthening of our foundation for many years to come.  Together, we continue to work on finding fiscally responsible solutions to support the House’s daily operations, and our focus remains on maintaining the highest standards of accountability to the American people.”

In 1999, the House received the first-ever clean financial audit on the previous year’s operations, a trend which has continued for seventeen consecutive years.

Miller, Brady Statement on Unsecured USCP Firearms

2015/05/01

WASHINGTON – Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller (R-MI) and Ranking Member Robert Brady (D-PA) issued the following statement regarding unsecured firearms in the U.S. Capitol Complex:

“The recent reports of unattended firearms left behind by U.S. Capitol Police Officers are extremely concerning.  The fact that dangerous weapons were left in the open, potentially within reach of the general public, is unacceptable.  We will be looking for a full briefing on these incidents, how they happened, what corrective action has been taken, and how we hopefully do not have similar instances in the future.”

House Admin Update on Security Review of the Capitol Grounds

2015/04/23

WASHINGTON – Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller (MI-10) and Ranking Member Robert Brady (PA-01) today issued the following statement discussing the security response to last week’s incident involving a small aircraft landing on the U.S. Capitol grounds.  Miller and Brady said:

“This week, we met with U.S. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine and House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving to discuss the communications process alerting Members and every office within the Capitol complex of emergency situations.  It is vital during any emergency that information must be delivered quickly and accurately in order to ensure the safety of the public, staff and Members.  Both the Capitol Police and the Sergeant at Arms are quickly and decisively taking steps to identify any possible vulnerability that may exist in the complex and improve protocols for responding to any emerging threats.  Our Committee will remain in close contact with those who are responsible for providing security throughout this process.  Bottom line, there is no room for error when responding to any potentially dangerous situation.  We thank the men and women of the Capitol Police for their service and continued commitment to our Capitol’s security.”

House Admin Statement on Small Aircraft Entering U.S. Capitol Grounds

2015/04/16

WASHINGTON – Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller (MI-10) and Ranking Member Robert Brady (PA-01) today issued the following statement regarding yesterday’s incident with a small aircraft landing on the U.S. Capitol Grounds.  Miller and Brady said:

“We are in close contact with the U.S. Capitol Police during the review of yesterday’s incident with a small aircraft landing on the U.S. Capitol Grounds.  Frankly, the individual is fortunate that this stunt did not cost him his life.  Bottom line, this small aircraft should have never been able to access protected airspace and land on the U.S. Capitol Grounds – and this cannot happen again.  Our Committee will work with the U.S. Capitol Police and both the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms to ensure that this incident is fully reviewed and security measures are updated to make certain the protection of Members of Congress, staff, visitors and the entire Capitol Complex remains at the highest level.”
