Likely smooth sailing for Comptroller General nominee Gene Dodaro
Wednesday - 11/24/2010, 4:07pm EST
"The Democratic and Republican leaders of a Senate committee showed strong support Thursday for President Barack Obama's nominee for comptroller general of the Government Accountability Office.
"Dodaro, 59, has worked in the GAO for more than 30 years, including as chief operating officer and as head of the Accounting and Information Management Division, and he became acting comptroller general in March 2008 after Comptroller General David Walker resigned.
"Panel ranking member Susan Collins (R-Maine) joked that the evident bipartisan support for Dodaro 'kind of takes the suspense out' of the nomination process.
"Lieberman, Collins and Sens. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) and Tom Carper (D-Del.) were the only panel members in attendance at Thursday's hearing. They questioned Dodaro about his priorities for the agency, which strives to identify and eliminate wasteful spending and programs in Congress and the executive branch. All four Senators expressed a desire for more aggressive GAO oversight, citing the economic challenges facing the country."
