The Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee will hold a hearing this week to examine the implementation of Coast Guard programs, and to examine a recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report investigating commercial fishing vessel safety and vessel construction standards.  This hearing builds upon the Subcommittee’s previous oversight hearings focused on the Service’s mission performance and long-term planning for the acquisition of major systems. 

The hearing of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, chaired by U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), is entitled, “Implementation of Coast Guard Programs.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, in 2167 Rayburn House Office Building.

Witness list:

  • Rear Admiral Linda Fagan, Deputy Commandant for Operations, Policy, and Capabilities, United States Coast Guard
