WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee, issued the following statement regarding the resignation of Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Katherine Archuleta: 

“This is a necessary step to repair the damage done by the breaches at OPM, but it amounts to little to nothing if substantive culture changes aren’t made at the agency—and throughout Washington as a whole. 

The personal information of well over 20 million Americans has been compromised as a result of the mismanagement that occurred before and during Katherine Archuleta’s tenure. When she appeared before my subcommittee recently, her responses left my colleagues and I with little confidence that she was the right person to carry out the necessary reforms that must be made at OPM. The latest revelations about the extent of the second breach confirm that notion.

The American people have lost faith in their institutions. The only way to restore this faith and make government function properly is for the White House and Congress to hold people accountable for their actions.”
