He is ranking Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Federal Financial Management. Topics included his career in the House and the Senate, the Transparency in Accountability Act, making the “full disclosure” information available on the Internet, and the ability of members of Congress to check on each other.
