An August 2012 DOE Inspector General report found “multiple system failures on several levels” allowed three trespassers who “defaced the building” to approach Y-12 undetected.
The lawmakers requested information on how the DOE was addressing security issues at nuclear facilities. The committee is planning a March 13 Oversight and Investigations subcommittee hearing on the subject.
Letter signatories include full committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.), ranking member Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), Vice Chairwoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Oversight and Investigations subcommittee Chairman Tim Murphy (R-Pa.), subcommittee ranking member Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and subcommittee Vice Chairman Michael Burgess (R-Texas).
