Legislative Updates

Members of House and Senate oversight committees announced

The House and Senate are finalizing committee assignments for the 118th Congress. The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability (COA) and the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) are the primary congressional committees with jurisdiction over the Postal Service and federal employees.

COA functions to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of the federal government and its agencies, while providing accountability.  Similarly, HSGAC has broad jurisdiction over government operations and focuses on the effectiveness of all federal agencies. Because these committees have jurisdiction over the Postal Service, it is important to familiarize these committee members with letter carrier issues. With many new members serving on these committees, including in leadership roles, NALC will prioritize working with these members on our key issues.

Members of COA and HSGAC are listed below.
