Senator Joins Critics Calling for ATF to Be Rolled into Another Agency

By Steve Neavling

At least one U.S. senator says the time has come to end the ATF and absorb it into other law enforcement agencies.

Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyoming, wrote a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, calling for the ATF to be disbanded if it can’t be adequately reformed.

“As you know, the ATF is one of several federal law enforcement components and has been subject to several recent controversies…Given the ATF’s serious challenges, I believe the Senate should examine these proposals and take action to correct the failures of the ATF,” Enzi wrote.

The senator is among a growing chorus of critics calling for the ATF to be transferred to another agency.

Homeland Security employees are helping themselves to unearned overtime, costing the federal agency a lot of money, whistleblowers are reporting, according to the Washington Post.

The overtime can add as much as 25% to a paycheck and is used as an incentive for new employees, the Post reported.

The federal Office of Special Counsel on Thursday released a report that declared Homeland Security is involved in a “gross waste of government funds.”

Overtime pay in six offices reached $8.7 million a year, the Post reported.
