Re: Congressional Oversight of JFK Act
Rep. Darrel Issa (R. Calf.) , Chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and Rep. James Lankford (Rep. Ok.5) Chairman of the Sub-committee on Technology, Information Policy, Governmental Relations and Procurement Reform and members of the relevant committee -
Vice Chair Rep. Mike Kelly (R. Pa.3), Jason Chaffetz (UT. 3), Tim Walberg (MI-7), Paul Labrador (ID-1), Pat Meehan (PA.7), Blake Farentold (TX-27), Gerald Connolly (D. Va.), Christopher Murphy (D. Conn.), Stephen Lynch (D. Mass)].
Congress passed the JFK Act of 1992, requiring the release of all government records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, in order to regain the public’s confidence in government, which has been in steady decline since the assassination in November 1963.
Since the last time Congress conducted a hearing on the JFK Act (June 4, 1997), the House Oversight Committee has not held one hearing on this issue, despite the destruction of Secret Service documents, the loss of national security records and the continued wrongful withholding of records that Congress has ordered released to the public.
It is imperative that Congress take some action to ensure that the law is enforced and the work mandated by the JFK Assassination Records Act is completed.
Therefore, We, the undersigned citizens of the United States and the free world, do hereby request the House Oversight Committee do its duty and hold public oversight hearings on the JFK Act.
