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
Washington, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney has reintroduced the “Contractors and Federal Spending Accountability Act” (H.R. 3033) with Congressman Ed Towns (D-NY), Chair of the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Management, Organization, and Procurement. The bill would create a comprehensive, centralized database to more efficiently monitor the federal procurement system and help protect U.S. taxpayer dollars. Currently, no central database exists to track fraudulent federal contractors and prevent them from continuing to do business with the federal government.
WASHINGTON - Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), a long-time champion of the Census and former ranking member on the Government Reform Census Subcommittee, today praised the inclusion of full funding for the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), and funding for the 2010 Census Partnership Program, in the Fiscal Year 2008 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations bill. The Bush Administration left the funding for these important Census programs out of its original budget proposal, and Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV) was instrumental in securing this appropriation.
WASHINGTON, DC – As the Census Bureau enters a crucial moment that will determine the accuracy of the 2010 count, Members of Congress are urging President Bush to quickly fill high-level vacancies at the Bureau with seasoned, non-partisan professionals (letter to president). Already facing severe budget cuts that may hamper its work, the Bureau has been in flux since Director Louis Kincannon and his top deputy, Hermann Habermann, abruptly resigned on the same day in November.
