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.
