The disputed incident at a GSA conference in Nashville has federal managers and people on Capitol Hill thinking about inspectors general. An IG agent banged on the hotel door of a GSA manager late at night, wanting information. IGs have law enforcement powers. The question is when they should use them, and on whose orders. Kotz is the former IG of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Bill Hughes — General Counsel, National Association of Federal Veterinarians
The Agriculture Department wants to send inspectors to Mexico to check out cattle headed for the United States.
