As we mentioned before, this Friday, Metro officials will be giving testimony before the Subcommittee on Health Care, District of Columbia, Census and the National Archives entitled “WMATA: Is There a Security Gap?”
Hill staffers who read this blog are interested in hearing your questions about Metro security and safety. We hear that if there are particularly good questions, with information to support them, those questions will likely make their way to Committee members, so ask away.
The hearing will examine current policies regarding coordination between the jurisdictions that oversee the system and will examine any security gaps that might exist.
Other matters of discussion will include safety and outages.
Sorry, but that's about as specific as we've got.
Witnesses will include Richard Sarles, GM and CEO of WMATA, Chief Michael Taborn of the Metro Transit Police Department, Chief Cathy Lanier of the Metropolitan Police Department and Anthony Griffin, County Executive, Fairfax County Government.
The hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. in room 2247 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
