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.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "I want to commend both Senator Durbin, Senator Feingold, and especially Senator Boxer for their hard work to defeat this special interest legislation in the Senate. I am outraged that their opponents in the US Senate continue to defend this inexcusable special interest rider. Their opponents are obviously more interested in protecting the greasy hands of big-oil special interests, than in giving America's schoolchildren the money they are entitled to."
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "Today's defeat in the Senate of the oil royalties rider proves once again that whenever we debate these issues out in the open, the tax payers always win. Whenever big-money, big-oil companies are able to do their dealings in backrooms, the tax payers always lose.
WASHINGTON, DC - "I am confident that tomorrow Congress will rise from its own ashes of big-money influence and do the one thing Americans have been asking us to do for decades: pass campaign finance reform.
