House Oversight Committee Priorities
During my time serving Wisconsin’s Sixth District in Washington, I have seen that there is no shortage of waste, fraud, and abuse within our federal government and its agencies. That is why it is an honor to be entrusted to serve on the House Oversight Committee, where our mission is to root out these improprieties in order to restore efficiency, transparency, and fairness in Washington.
There are a number of topics that warrant Oversight investigations in the new year — notably, the historic crisis at our Southern border, our disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, funding historically corrupt countries with American tax dollars, the Biden family’s overseas business dealings, the origins of COVID-19, among many others.
This week, I joined Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer (R-KY), and Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan (R-OH), in a press conference to discuss the international business dealings of President Biden's family and the national security risk that they may present to the United States, and lay out the priorities of these investigative Committees come January.
Next year, I am committed to conducting rigorous oversight with my colleagues to ensure our government is working on behalf of the interests of the American people. You deserve transparency from the federal government, and that includes the Biden Administration. After two years of ignoring requests for information, the Republican-led House Oversight Committee will work to hold the Administration accountable.

Investigating Abuse Within the Junior ROTC
This week, the House Oversight Committee's Subcommittee on National Security held a bipartisan hearing to investigate disturbing reports of sexual abuse within the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC).
For many young Americans, the first step to joining our military is enrolling in the Junior ROTC in high school or college to prepare to serve the greatest military in the world. Unfortunately, the allegations of instructors within the Junior ROTC abusing their positions of power to sexually assault students under their supervision is deeply concerning and erodes faith in our military. Over the past five years, there have been 58 confirmed instances of sexual misconduct against Junior ROTC instructors. We need accountability from our leaders in the Junior ROTC and protection for the young men and women who wish to serve in uniform.
As Ranking Member, I opened the hearing by emphasizing the vital importance of protecting cadets from harassment. Along with my colleagues on the Subcommittee, I'm calling on the Department of Defense to investigate these matters so we can prevent these heinous acts of abuse moving forward.
Under President Biden's watch, the Department of Homeland Security reported more than 4 million encounters with illegal immigrants, representing the entire population of Milwaukee more than 7 times over.
Next year, House Republicans will demand the Biden Administration answer for refusing to prioritize border security.
I had a blast joining the folks at RCS Empowers for their Community Day in Sheboygan! Together, we are working to provide individuals with disabilities in the Sixth District with the tools to thrive!
