Congressman Paul Broun, chairman of the subcommittee of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, also asked Acting Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank for “a complete and unredacted” copy of the original report into fisheries law enforcement abuses of industry businesses, which was released in redacted form in May 2011.

The perceived delay in releasing the report has resulted in further eroding of public trust in the agency,” Kerry said in his letter Wednesday to Acting Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank.

The Commerce Department, which oversees the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which in turn oversees the National Marine Fisheries Service.

Since spring, Broun has been attempting without success to get the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration travel records for top executives, including Administrator Jane Lubchenco and Eric Schwaab, her choice to head the National Marine Fisheries Service.

In his third letter, dated Nov. 28, seeking travel records, Broun wrote to Lubchenco that “this level of recalcitrance mocks the notion of transpaency.”

Reading this, I am amazed at several things:
1. Ridiculous fines and fees this industry has to put up with.
2. That a government agency - any government agency - actually reviewed its own findings.
3. That a government agency - any government agency - once finding that its representatives acted improperly, made an effort to make things right... in any measure.

There's probably more, but I am too struck by these to concentrate.
Rebecca Blank is not long for this job. Obama rats will destroy her.
