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
Mr. Chairman, Mrs. Maloney, and Members of the Subcommittee: I welcome this opportunity to report on the status of Census 2000. When I last testified, we were 53 days from Census Day, April 1. Now we are 24 days away and the clock is racing. Much has happened in the last month. The next few weeks will be the most demanding phase of Census 2000 thus far.
Thank you Mr. Chairman, and welcome again Dr. Prewitt. I would like to thank you Dr. Prewitt for taking time out of what must be an incredibly busy schedule to appear before us today. As the Census Bureau begins the most intensive operations of the 2000 Census, Congress and the American public need to stay informed on the progress of the largest peace-time mobilization in American history. I'm happy to say that from reading your testimony Dr. Prewitt, it appears that the 2000 Census operations are on schedule and as of today there are no major problems.
