Waxman questions need for Schedules panel

The panel created to evaluate and possibly change the General Services Administration's schedule progam may not be needed, according to Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), chairman hof the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.


Waxman wrote to acting GSA Acting Administrator David Bibb asking him to consider disbanding the panel.


In his July 24 letter, Waxman noted that ousted Administrator Lurita Doan was the one who created the panel. "No officials inside or outside the government -- other than former Administrator Lurita Doan -- expressed the view that this Advisory Panel was necessary," Waxman wrote.


Waxman said it would make no sense to continue convening the panel if it's not needed.
