Josh Hawley (R Mo.) also piled on, saying the agencies shouldn’t be given the increased funding or resources they’ve requested until they sort out their jurisdictional issues.”What I see from your agency is frankly a culture of paralysis,” Hawley said. “I’m tempted to call it a culture of capitulation.”The fiery hearing highlighted how the agencies could face an uphill battle in their efforts to take on some of the world’s richest and most powerful companies.
