CNMI House Speaker BJ Attao on Monday established the new special committee to review the “executive expenditures” of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres.
The Speaker said in a memorandum that “in consideration of the issues and serious implications that have been officially raised relative to executive expenditures of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres, I am obliged to create a Special Committee on Fiscal Review of Executive Expenditures to review said materials in a fair and reasonable manner.”
On June 12, 2020, the House minority bloc released thousands of pages of records of the governor’s first-class travel, official representation, reimbursement, executive security, housing expenses, and utility expenses.
These records were obtained through an Open Government Act request to the Department of Finance.
