Senator Jon Tester is calling for a Congressional investigation into big bonuses that went to executives of government-sponsored housing organizations. Tester is also demanding more details about the bonuses – totaling nearly $13-million dollars. He wants to know who approved them – when they were paid – and how they were justified. Tester says the bonuses are “a violation of trust with the taxpayers of this country.”

Tester is also demanding that the Federal Housing Finance Agency post information about the bonuses online for the public to see.
