Oversight and Government Reform
Since coming to Congress in 1992, Carolyn Maloney has served on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the main investigative committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. This committee has jurisdiction to investigate any federal program and any matter with federal policy implications. Congresswoman Maloney also sits on the Government Operations subcommittee and previously served on the National Security Subcommittee and as the ranking member of the Subcommittee on the Census.
Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney supports strong oversight and management of federal programs and taxpayer dollars. She has continuously fought to curtail gun trafficking, support the mission of the Census Bureau, reform the system that allowed private companies to underpay for oil extracted on federal lands, prevent further erosion of reproductive choice for women in America, and ensure the postal service remains solvent and continues its presence in our communities.

More on Oversight and Government Reform
This has been an historic week – with the House sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate and the Virginia House of Delegates and Senate voting to become the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. On Monday, the House passed my bill to prevent corporate executives from taking advantage of a loophole that currently allows them to trade on information before it’s made public and I introduced a bill to ensure a greater number of employees are entitled to accommodations in the workplace to pump breastmilk.
Washington, D.C. (Jan.15, 2020)—Today, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted on H.Res. 798, a resolution to appoint managers for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump and transmit the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate:
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends and that your 2020 has been off to a great start.
As we begin the new year, and the second session of the 116th Congress, I wanted to share some of what I’ve been up to.
Opposing a War with Iran and Mistreatment of Iranian Americans
House Democrats sent a letter to the Trump administration Tuesday demanding answers over reports that up to 200 Iranian-Americans were sent for secondary screening and held for up to 12 hours at the Canadian border over the weekend.
The letter sent to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which was signed by six House Democrats who chair relevant committees or subcommittees, was intended to “express our alarm” over media reports about the detentions at the Peace Arch Border Crossing in Blaine, Wash.
WASHINGTON — House Democrats demanded documents from the Department of Homeland Security on Monday to investigate a “troubling pattern of abuse and poor treatment” of migrants, after the death of a 16-year-old Guatemalan detainee and other new revelations.
Democratic lawmakers are demanding answers from the Department of Homeland Security following several deaths of migrant children in government custody since last year.
What a year we’ve had! It’s hard to believe that 2019 is coming to an end. With a new year—and decade—ahead, I wanted to take a look back at all that we accomplished together this year. We got a lot done working for the American people, including:
This week was a busy one, starting with an incredibly moving ceremony in New York during which our 9/11 heroes – first responders, survivors, and families – were honored for their tireless work in ensuring the permanent reauthorization and funding of the World Trade Center Health Program and 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.
Four senior Democratic lawmakers said HHS must turn over more documents about Medicare and Medicaid chief Seema Verma's extensive use of public relations consultants, claiming the department has largely been uncooperative with their investigation.
The lawmakers said information so far provided by the health department has prompted new questions about Verma’s role in shaping communications contracts, including some that helped burnish her personal brand.
