Hawley Delivers Floor Speech Urging Support for Ukraine Inspector General Amendment

Tuesday, March 28, 2023

Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) delivered remarks ahead of the Senate’s vote on his amendment that would require a special inspector general position be created to track all taxpayer money that has been sent to Ukraine since 2022.

“My amendment is very simple,” said Senator Hawley. “Let’s create one government watch dog, not two, not three, not twenty, one government watchdog, to oversee every cent that is spent on Ukraine, to report back to this Congress and to the American people, as to how their hard-earned money is being spent.”

Senator Hawley penned an op-ed earlier this week, calling upon Congress to pass his amendment that would set up the special inspector general to Ukraine.

Earlier this month, Senator Hawley introduced the Special Inspector General for Ukraine Assistance Act, legislation that would establish a Special Inspector General to oversee military and non-military assistance to Ukraine.
