As Vice Chair of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation, I will work to rein in the continuous onslaught of excessive government overreach that has affected so many hardworking Americans. Oversight is one of the most important functions of the Congress, and I am honored to play such an integral role in this process.
