Legislation | Documents/Reports | Links | Press Releases

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.

Dear Friend,

Today, all eyes are on the Department of Justice, Congress, and the redacted Mueller report. Attorney General Barr’s performance this morning for the President underscores the need for Congress to receive the full unredacted report, along with all of its underlying evidence, and that Special Counsel Mueller needs to testify publicly before Congress. The Attorney General is supposed to work for the American people, not put President Trump’s interests first.

Dear Friend, This week, the House passed important bills to expand and renew the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), condemn the Trump Administration’s latest effort to take away Americans’ health care, and to end U.S. involvement in the war in Yemen. I was proud to vote for and support these measures and am especially pleased to tell you that VAWA included a provision I authored to continue and increase funding to process DNA evidence, including untested rape kits, which helps victims get justice and put perpetrators behind bars.
