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 week in Washington, DC, the House approved a resolution outlining the rules for the next stages of the impeachment inquiry. We also passed a bill to impose sanctions on Turkey for its invasion of northern Syria, a resolution to affirm our country’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and bills to protect our public lands.
We made history this week in the House of Representatives with the first Congressional hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment in more than three decades. It was an inspiring day and the first step towards passing legislation that will remove the arbitrary deadline that was imposed when the ERA was passed through Congress in 1972.
The House Oversight Committee also shed light on the work we need to do to ensure everyone who has the right to vote can do so, and I joined with my colleagues to pass, in a bipartisan way, H.R. 9: The Climate Action Now Act.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), senior member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, today formally requested that Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) hold a hearing into the Trump Administration’s failure and refusal to use the funds provided to protect election integrity in the wake of Russian interference in 2016.
