Amid military budget fight, legislators call for Pentagon audit

Friday, August 3, 2012



Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) just completed a four-state tour with fellow Senate Republicans to discuss the dangers of sequestration defense cuts, but this week she also signed on to a bill calling for an audit of the dense and inscrutable Pentagon budget.

Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) introduced the “Audit the Pentagon Act,” and Ayotte joined Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) in supporting the legislation, which would work to ensure Defense Department compliance with financial reporting requirements already on the books.
