House Oversight Committee holds hearing on Occupy DC

Darrell Issa

The House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing this morning which may determine the fate of Occupy DC. Chairman Darrell Issa demanded that the National Park Service turn over communications regarding the two encampments at McPherson Park and Freedom Plaza. So far the National Park Service hasn’t fully complied with Issa’s request. It defines the camps as protests and maintains that First Amendment rights apply.

National Park Service director Jonathan Jarvis is scheduled to testify at the Oversight subcommittee hearing.
