Oversight

 

The Oversight Subcommittee assists the full Committee in carrying out its general oversight responsibilities of matters within the scope of the full Committee’s jurisdiction. The Oversight Subcommittee works with the full Committee and other Subcommittees to determine whether the laws within the jurisdiction of the Committee (including tax, trade, health, Human Resources, and Social Security laws) are being implemented and carried out efficiently and in accordance with Congressional intent. The Oversight Subcommittee also provides oversight of the federal agencies (such as the Internal Revenue Service) responsible for implementing laws within the full Committee’s jurisdiction.
