WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement after House Administration Committee Chairman Candice Miller (R-MI) announced that the House of Representatives has received a clean financial audit for the 18th year in a row:

“As an institution charged with protecting taxpayer dollars, we strive to lead by example, and a clean financial bill of health is proof we are on the right track. I want to especially commend Chairman Miller and the House Administration Committee, the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, and the Office of the House Inspector General. Underneath all the titles and acronyms are dedicated public servants committed to the highest standards of accountability and transparency. I know we will continue to raise the bar on behalf of the taxpayers we serve.”
