House Oversight Committee Holds Organizational Meeting, Adopts Official Rules, & Announces Republican Members

Published: Jan 27, 2015

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today held its organizational meeting for the 114th Congress to adopt its official rules package along with one amendment, which passed by unanimous consent.

During the meeting, Chairman Jason Chaffetz (UT-03) announced the Republican Committee Members as well as subcommittee assignments.

“In the United States of America we’re different because we do look at the country, we do look at our government, with a self-critical eye… with the goal and the desire to improve it,” said Chairman Chaffetz.

“I’m looking forward to working with Mr. Cummings, and people on both sides of the aisle, to understand how our government is working, as well as ways we can make it better,” Chairman Chaffetz added. “I’m hopeful that we can work together more than we can work independently.”
