WASHINGTON – Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller (R-MI) issued the following statement after the House’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) released the U.S. House of Representatives’ Financial Statement Audit reporting a clean opinion for fiscal year 2014:

“I am proud to announce that the House of Representatives has received a clean audit for fiscal year 2014. Under the strong leadership of Speaker John Boehner, and with the professionalism of the entire House operations team, especially the Office of the House Inspector General and the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, the House continues to remain in good financial standing. Many enhancements have been made over the years and there will always be areas for improvement, but together the House and all of the support offices have worked hard to move this institution forward. This independent financial audit allows for constant improvement and strengthening of our foundation for many years to come. Together, we continue to work on finding fiscally responsible solutions to support the House’s daily operations, and our focus remains on maintaining the highest standards of accountability to the American people.”

In 1999, the House received the first-ever clean financial audit on the previous year’s operations, a trend which has continued for seventeen consecutive years.
