New Grilling Set For Current, Former GSA Officials

WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress is turning up the heat in its investigation of an $823,000 General Services Administration conference at a Las Vegas resort in 2010.

Lawmakers will be learning more Tuesday from a fired GSA executive who threw a party there on the taxpayers' dime. He has been sent a letter by his former agency demanding reimbursement of
$1,960 to pay for the party in his room.

Robert Peck is set to testify in the second day of hearings before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on the agency's misuse of taxpayers' money. Peck was commissioner of the Public Buildings Service at the GSA, which is in charge of federal buildings and supplies.

Another witness, current Deputy Commissioner Susan Brita, was instrumental in asking Inspector General Brian Miller to investigate.
