GSA To Brief Congress Next Week On Delayed Transition



On Monday the General Service Administration (GSA) agreed to brief both the House and the Senate about the transition process next week. Its delay in ascertaining that the winner of the presidential election is Joe Biden has affected his effectiveness. He is unable to receive security briefings, access to funds or information about the steps taken to mitigate the coronavirus specifically vaccine distribution.


A spokesperson from GSA gave the following statement on Monday:


“GSA sent its response to the respective Committees today. GSA’s Deputy Administrator Allison Brigati will host a 30-minute briefing on Monday, November 30, with the four requesting House Committee Chairs and their Ranking Members. On Monday, November 30, GSA will also host an in-person-only briefing for Senate Appropriations Committee, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Senate Environment and Public Works Committee staff. Staff for the House Appropriations and Oversight Committees are invited to attend this in-person briefing as well.”


Democrats as well as current and former Republican officials have asked the GSA to go forward with the transition. More than 100 Republican security experts or experts who have served in Republican administrations have asked President Trump to concede the election.


Deadlines for states to certify their election results vary. They should be in by December 14, when the Electoral College will meet. The presidential inauguration is scheduled on January 20, 2021.
