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.

May 7, 2003 Press Release
Washington, DC - Today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), former Ranking Member of the Census Subcommittee, praised the Census Bureau's decision to finally release estimates on the Hispanic subgroup based on the Census 2000 long form data. Because the Census Bureau changed the Hispanic origin question from the 1990 census to the 2000 census without first testing it, the number of persons listing a subgroup (such as "Mexican," Salvadoran," and "Dominican") went down dramatically. Representatives Maloney, Serrano (D-NY), Rangel (D-NY), Waxman (D-CA), Davis (D-IL), and Gonzales (D-TX) urged Director Kincannon to release the information.
