Oversight and Government Reform

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.

Yesterday, I called on all members of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) to set affordable prices for any medications that are or may be used to prevent or treat coronavirus, including vaccines. In this time of crisis, no effected American should be unable to afford life-saving medications. Also, I released documents from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that show the agency has provided only a fraction of the personal protective equipment and critical medical supplies requested by five states and the District of Columbia. Lastly, the FDA responded to my call with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that they revise the outdated and discriminatory policy which prevented gay and bisexual men from donating blood. More on these and other updates from Congress, New York State, and New York City below.
