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
WASHINGTON, DC - Bipartisan legislation reintroduced in Congress would help federal workers care for new additions to their families. Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY); Tom Davis (R-VA), chairman of the House Government Reform Committee; and Steny Hoyer (D-MD), House Minority Whip, have sponsored the Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act (H.R. 5148), which would give civil servants six weeks of paid leave for the birth of a child or an adoption. Currently, federal workers have to use annual leave and sick leave to care for their newborns.
WASHINGTON, DC - Members of Congress are expressing concern about the new federal program for collecting mineral royalties owed on Tribal and Indian lands. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), joined by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-CA), George Miller (D-CA), Edward Markey (D-MA), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), and Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), have asked Johnnie Burton, Director of the Minerals Management Service (MMS), for answers (letter to Burton: http://maloney.house.gov/documents/govreform/oil/20060403ltrMMS.pdf). MMS’s new program, which was initiated in 2001, focuses on compliance reviews of company royalty reports rather than full audits conducted under U.S. Government Auditing Standards. Compliance desk reviews are also being used for collecting royalties owed federal taxpayers and State governments.
WASHINGTON, DC - During a news conference today, lawmakers announced landmark whistleblower protection legislation for federal workers and contractors. The legislation authored by Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Edward Markey (D-MA) in the House (H.R. 4925) and Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) in the Senate will give protection for whistleblowers who risk their careers to stand up for the American people.
