The leaders of the Senate Armed Services Committee are responding to news reports that privatized housing records were falsified at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas.
Sens. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Jack Reed (D-R.I.) are urging “the Air Force and appropriate federal law enforcement agencies to investigate this fully so we can truly understand what is going on and how pervasive this problem is,” according to The Hill.
Reuters and CBS News brought to light the allegations that company officials doctored maintenance records at Lackland to get performance bonuses, following previous reports of similar issues at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla.
