Oversight and Reform

Congress must work towards reining in the amount of regulatory red tape enacted in recent years.

As a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Congressman Comer will continue to hold our nation’s public servants and officials to the highest ethical standards and promote greater government transparency and accountability.
