Government Oversight

f t # e
 
Oversight of the Executive Branch and its federal agencies is one of Congress’s primary responsibilities – whether the issue is the botched handling of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, the Justice Department’s prying into journalists’ communications or the partisanship of the IRS.
Accountability, transparency and appropriate public scrutiny are necessary for government to function well, within its constitutional bounds.

Foxx legislation pertaining to Government Oversight and Accountability (sponsored, co-sponsored, or supported by Rep. Foxx):

H.R.899: The Unfunded Mandates Information & Transparency Act
H.R.196: Eliminates automatic pay adjustments for Members of Congress
H.R.423: Eliminates the Congressional pension for Members of Congress
