Black Lawmaker Tops Oversight Committee

 

 
WASHINGTON – Black Maryland Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member-designee, has released a statement following his election to that position for the 112 th Congress. 
  
“I am honored by the trust shown in me by my Democratic colleagues,” said Cummings. “Oversight and Government Reform will be a committee of great importance over the next two years, as we continue to seek the causes and solutions of our economic downturn, as we attempt to stem the tide of fraudulent foreclosures in America, and as we ensure our citizens’ money is spent effectively and efficiently by the Federal Government. 
  
“I have served proudly on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, both in the Majority and in the Minority.  I understand the power of the Committee and how it can be utilized for progress and growth, or for obstruction and attack. I strongly believe in the mission of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that is embodied in that Committee’s very name: to conduct meaningful oversight of government operations and identify methods for improving government processes. 
  
“I am ready to stand beside the new Majority as they continue the hard work Democrats have begun, seeking real solutions to the problems that trouble our government and our nation. I understand the urgency of ensuring that government effectively completes its missions and serves the needs of our citizens.  I will hold this Administration to the highest standards and will vigorously exercise the Congress’ responsibility of overseeing executive action.”
