GAO releases this week

Yippee, it's Friday! And with the end of the work week it is time again for the list of weekly releases from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The GAO is often called the investigative arm of Congress. This week they investigated a variety of issues, such as defense, customs, elderly drivers, and nuclear smuggling. If you would like to know more about the GAO, check out the library's guide.
