GAO to Host Live Chat re: BOP Overcrowding Report

As noted in a couple of recent posts, last week the General Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report concerning federal prison overcrowding and its impact. Now comes word that GAO Director Maurer will participate in a streaming video conference regarding the report:


On September 12, 2012, GAO issued its latest prison report, entitled: Bureau of PrisonS: Growing Inmate Crowding Negatively Affects Inmates, Staff, and Infrastructure, GAO-12-743.
On October 3, 2012, GAO Director Dave Maurer will respond to questions about this report in real time, via streaming video. This session is part of GAO’s new AskGAOLive series.
We hope that you can join us for this interactive session and ask that you please circulate this invitation to any interested colleagues.
There is no need to respond in advance and participation is open to all.
When: Wednesday, October 3 at 12:00pm ET
How to Submit Questions: Users may submit questions in advance by emailing them to AskGAOLive@gao.gov. During the chat, users may submit questions in three ways:
1.   Email: AskGAOLive@gao.gov
2.   Twitter: use the hashtag #AskGAOLive, or

We look forward to your participation!
