Washington, D.C. — U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement in support of increased oversight of U.S. aid to Ukraine. The statement comes as the Offices of Inspectors General for the Department of Defense, Department of State, and U.S. Agency for International Development released their Fiscal Year 2023 Joint Strategic Oversight Plan.
“U.S. security, economic and humanitarian assistance has made a critical difference for Ukraine as they fight to maintain their independence. However, Congress can’t only cut checks, we must also ensure U.S. aid is being spent transparently, effectively, and advances U.S. national security interests. The Inspectors Generals’ newly-released Joint Strategic Oversight Plan is a welcome development. We look forward to hearing from them on their findings and recommendations on how to enhance the oversight of these funds and how to replenish U.S. stockpiles in a timely manner.”
