A new report outlining high risk areas in government was released today by the Government Accountability Office. The report outlines areas that need special attention by Congress and the Executive Branch. Three new areas of concern were added and one dropped from the list. The high risk list now includes the financial regulatory system, oversight of medical products and controlling toxic chemicals. We are joined by Chris Mihm, Managing Director for Strategic Issues at GAO.
