Hearing on Justice Programs in September

By John Kelly

The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the Office of Justice Programs in September to examine whether its grant making is in line with the best research and policies.

The hearing will include analysis of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, said crime subcommittee counsel Mario Dispenza, but likely will not focus on the grant making that landed OJJDP Administrator J. Robert Flores in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

The hearing is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 18, and will be held in Room 2141 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Dispenza said a witness list has not been finalized.
