Chairman Hastings Follow-up Letter to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Administrator Jane Lubchenco Regarding the Mismanagement of the Asset Forfeiture Fund


WASHINGTON, D.C., June 28, 2012 -

Dear Administrator Lubchenco:

I am writing to follow up on my April 2, 2012 request for information about the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's ("NOAA") response to the mismanagement of the Asset Forfeiture Fund that was recently identified by the Department of Commerce's Office of Inspector General's ("IG"). The response, dated May 7, 2012 but not received by the Committee on Natural Resources until May 30, 2012, lacks candor and transparency.

The apparent pattern of financial mismanagement at NOAA is highly concerning.
