WASHINGTON – Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R- Calif.) established Transition Teams for the 118th Congress to ensure that a Republican Majority is ready to get to work for the American people on Day One. Congressman James Comer (R-Ky.) was selected to lead the Oversight and Accountability Transition Team.

These Transition Teams will address three core priorities as Republicans prepare to lead the House of Representatives. These teams are:

  1. Commitment to America Implementation, led by Republican Whip Steve Scalise
  2. Oversight and Accountability, led by Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member James Comer and Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan
  3. Restoring the People’s House, led by Congressman Bryan Steil

Leader McCarthy released the following statement on the Transition Teams for the 118th Congress:
“The House Republican majority is getting right to work. These Transition Teams will ensure we hit the ground running on issues that Democrats have ignored or made worse for the American people under one-party rule, all while shutting out our fellow citizens from the People’s House.”
