Blam!

Filed under: Uncategorized — matt w @ 10:19 am

Congress has apparently passed a bill beefing up the role of the TARP Inspector General, saying that he does not need Justice Department approval to among other things “carry a firearm while engaged in official duties as authorized under this Act or other statute.” I guess that’s the part of the Inspector General Act Janet Rehnquist was relying on.

(Seriously, it sounds like the bill increases the Inspector General’s independence and oversight powers, and that’s a good thing.)
