We’ve waited nearly 2 years for the results of this report. The report is a direct result of the November 2014 Hearing, entitled;
“Is the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge Being Properly Managed?”
At the Hearing, Congressman John Fleming, M.D., (Committee Chairman) said this;
“The FWS has a failing grade for achieving public visitation to Midway and for allowing Midway’s historic structures to deteriorate. He stated, “it was a mistake to make Midway Islands a Wildlife Refuge” and went on to say that the USFWS has no interest, expertise or desire in the National Memorial.
The Hearing prompted a GAO Audit, which then led to an Investigation. The results of the Audit/Investigation should soon be released – hopefully on May 9, 2016.
