Henry Bonilla, R-TX 23rd

Mr. BONILLA. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

I appreciate the chairman's support of my amendment and acknowledge his very thoughtful remarks. I would, however, point out that private accounting is not independent because they answer to the Ex-Im chairman and not the public. So, again, we are looking for answers. The public empowers us to keep an eye on how these funds are allocated, and they need to have the sun shine on them a little more, and the Inspector General would do that because obviously they are not being responsive at this time.

Mr. Chairman, I yield back the balance of my time.
