Comer Selected as Chairman of Oversight Committee

WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) today was selected to serve as the next chairman of the House Oversight Committee and issued the following statement:

“It is an honor to serve the American people as the next chairman of the House Oversight Committee. The American people have made it clear they want accountability in Washington and Oversight Committee Republicans are ready to deliver. For the past two years, one-party Democrat rule has resulted in multiple crises that are harming Americans without any oversight and accountability. The destructive path paved by the Biden Administration ends when Republicans have the gavel in January. Republicans will return the Oversight Committee to its primary duty to root out waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in the federal government and hold the Biden Administration accountable. We will continue our investigations into the national security threat posed by the Biden family’s influence peddling and shady business schemes, President Biden’s border crisis, COVID origins and U.S. taxpayer dollars used to fund dangerous research in Wuhan, the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, President Biden’s energy crisis, waste and mismanagement of pandemic relief funds, and more. We will use all tools at our disposal to identify problems and propose solutions that make the federal government more efficient, effective, transparent, and accountable to the American people.”
