CDIA Provides Testimony to Congress

CDIA filed supplemental testimony with the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections of the House Education and the Workforce Committee in connection with its March 24, 2015 hearing on a package of bills intended to reform EEOC practices.  Our testimony clears up a number of misstatements made at the hearing.  The testimony offered now builds on the written testimony CDIA offered in June 2014 to the Over-Criminalization Task Force of the House Judiciary Committee.  We blogged about that hearing here.
