Committees and Caucuses

Committees of the U.S. House of Representatives

Congressman Paul Gosar serves on two committess of the House of Representatives, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the House Natural Resources Committee.

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has oversight over virtually everything the government does and is dedicated to exercising effective oversight over the federal government. It also works proactively to investigate and expose waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government.  Gosar is committed to finding problems in the government and working with the American people to find commonsense solutions.  Through his role on the committee, he will continue to work toward bringing transparency to the federal government and opening up the dialogue between Capitol Hill and Arizonans.  Within the Oversight Committee, Congressman Gosar serves on three subcommittees:

                     
  • The Subcommittee on Energy Policy, Health Care, and Entitlements, of which Gosar is Vice Chairman, has oversight over federal health care policy, food and drug safety, energy policy and solvency of federal entitlement programs.
  • The Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation, and Regulatory Affairs  has oversight jurisdiction over regulatory affairs, impediments to economic growth and job creation, monetary policy, banking, infrastructure and tax policy.
  • The Subcommittee on National Security  has oversight jurisdiction over national security, homeland security, foreign operations, immigration, emergency management and criminal justice. 

Congressman Paul Gosar also serves on the House Natural Resources Committee, which considers legislation about American energy production, mineral lands and mining, fisheries and wildlife, public lands, oceans, Native Americans, irrigation and reclamation.  Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District is rich in natural resources and this committee is an important avenue for Gosar to fight for the concerns of the district. Within the Resources Committee, Congressman Gosar serves on three subcommittees:

  • The Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources oversees American energy production and mining on federal lands – both onshore and offshore.
  • The Subcommittee on Water and Power is responsible for matters concerning America’s water resources, federal irrigation projects, generation of electric power from federal water projects and interstate water issues.
  • The Subcommittee on Indian and Alaska Native Affairs oversees all matters regarding Native Americans, including the 565 federally recognized tribes and Alaska Native Corporations and nearly 1.9 million American Indians.
