There are 20 standing committees in the U.S. House of Representatives, each specializing in an important area of national interest. From reviewing legislation to providing congressional oversight of government activity, these committees handle a wide variety of responsibilities.
Each member of Congress typically serves on a small number of committees, and Rep. Norman is proud to serve on two during the 117th Congress, including:
The House Committee on Financial Services is responsible for legislation and issues related to the U.S. economy, our banking systems, securities and exchanges, along with housing and insurance. The Committee also maintains oversight of our nation's capital markets, the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, and the 12 Federal Reserve Banks across the country.
The Committee on Oversight and Reform is the main investigative committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. Within the Oversight Committee, Rep. Norman is the ranking member on the Environment Subcommittee, which has jurisdiction over federal activity in environmental protection, energy policy, public lands, public health, endangered species, and air & water quality.
