U.S. Comptroller General Gene Dodaro testified before the Senate Budget Committee on the Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) annual report on the nation’s fiscal health. Topics included steps Congress can take to ensure transparency in government spending, the growing debt and deficit, and the use of apportionment spending by the executive branch and how it impacts congressional “power of the purse” budgetary authority. They also discussed the need to budget for emergency preparedness so that when such health emergencies as the coronavirus outbreak occur, federal agencies dealing with emergency response do not have to wait for congressional spending resolutions for funding. close
