This is the February 11, 2014 hearing on "DC Navy Yard Shooting: Fixing the Security Clearance Process" held before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of Darrell E. Issa: "Today's hearing is entitled DC Navy Yard Shooting: Fixing the Security Clearance Process. I will now recognize myself. The Oversight Committee exists to secure two fundamental principles: first, Americans have a right to know that they money Washington takes from them is well spent, and second, Americans deserve an efficient, effective Government that works for them. Our duty on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee is to protect these rights. Our solemn responsibility is to hold Government accountable to taxpayers because taxpayers have a right to know what they get from their government. It is our job to work tirelessly in partnership with citizen watchdogs to deliver the facts to the American people and bring genuine reform to the Federal bureaucracy. This is our mission. […] This hearing will not deal entirely with management practices in hiring of Federal employees; it will primarily deal with the 4.9 million Americans holding security clearances, because the standard for security clearances should be higher than those for employees." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Katherine Archuleta, Stephen Lewis, Patrick McFarland, Susan A. Ordakowski, Michael Rhodes, Sterling Phillips, and Elijah Cummings.
