Greg Walden Announces Government Accountability Office Review of Cover Oregon
WASHINGTON, March 5 — Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore. (2nd CD), issued the following news release:
U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) today announced that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has agreed to his request to review Cover Oregon, the state’s troubled health exchange.
“Oregonians are rightfully concerned about the failure of Cover Oregon. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on this broken website, and taxpayers have little to show for it. The GAO will take an independent look into what went wrong. They have a reputation for independence and thoroughness. Their investigation will help taxpayers get answers about what happened at Cover Oregon and the over $300 million that has been allocated to the state. Oregonians deserve better,” Walden said.
