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.

Maloney (D-NY) sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta regarding recent reports of a Department of the Navy request to redact information from an Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) report about water contamination at the U.S. Marine Corps base, Camp Lejeune—where for three decades, thousands of Marines and their families consumed tap water contaminated with toxic chemicals that likely led to cancers and other illnesses, but have yet to receive justice.
WASHINGTON, DC-- Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, senior member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, delivered the following opening remarks at today's hearing titled 'Separation of Church and State' on the Obama Administration's recent contraception decision, where not a single woman was allowed at the witness table by the Committee's majority.

Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) to require a study to improve the measurement of oil and natural gas extracted from leased federal and Tribal lands was attached to the Consolidated Land, Energy, and Aquatic Resources (CLEAR) Act, H.R. 3534, comprehensive legislation that will provide greater efficiency and accountability to the management and regulation of energy resources to be considered by the full House today.
I rise in strong support of HR 5481, granting Subpoena Power to the Commission Investigating the BP Oil Spill. Last month, President Obama established the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling, a panel that will be vital to investigating the disaster and assuring this does not happen again. However, this Commission does not have subpoena power, something critical to ensuring the full disclosure of evidence and witnesses.
