House Votes to Allow Auditing of Intelligence Agencies
Despite previous veto threats from the White House, the House of Representatives adopted an amendment to a defense authorization bill that would give the Government Accountability Office the power to audit intelligence agencies. The proposal, authored by Representative Anna Eschoo (D-California), chair of the Subcommittee on Intelligence Community Management, was approved 218-210. Although the vote was primarily along party lines, twelve Republicans voted in favor of the bill, while 49 Democrats voted against it.
