WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI-12) announced she will return to the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability for the remainder of the 118th Congress. Tlaib will continue serving on the House Financial Services Committee.

The House Oversight and Accountability Committee is the main investigative body in Congress, considered to be one of the most important committees in the House of Representatives. The committee has jurisdiction over federal civil service, federal government operations, the United States Postal Service, and a wide range of other federal agencies.

“I’m so excited to be back on the House Oversight and Accountability Committee,” said Congresswoman Tlaib. “My residents sent me to Congress to fight for them and serving on this committee will give me the platform to make their voices heard amid far-right efforts to push culture wars, pursue conspiracy theories, and put corporate profits over everyday working people.”

Congresswoman Tlaib will continue to put her residents first while serving on the committee and ensure that they are provided with the transparency and oversight of the federal government that they deserve.
