Darrell Issa, the new GOP majority’s lead watchdog for government spending, met for an Joe, Biden, Darrell, Issa, budgethour to discuss shared concerns about oversight of the massive 2009 stimulus package, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“They identified some areas of agreement, including the need to enforce full compliance with reporting by recipients of Recovery Act funds,” said statements issued by both politicians’ offices.
