Chairman of the House Oversight Committee James Comer (R-Ky) announced a hearing to take place next week titled "Overdue Oversight of the Capital City: Part I.”
“Congress has sent a clear message to the D.C. Council: it’s time to make our nation’s capital safe again," Comer stated in a press release. "All Americans should feel safe in their capital city, but radical left-wing policies have led to a crime crisis, a declining educational system, and a diminishing tax base.
"As the committee with jurisdiction over the District of Columbia, the Oversight Committee has a constitutional responsibility to conduct oversight of the policies that have plagued our capital city," Comer continued in his statement.
The hearing will take place next Wednesday, March 29, and will have witnesses that include the chairman of the D.C. police union and the chief financial officer of D.C.
"I look forward to their cooperation and insight as we work to improve Washington, D.C. and hold its officials accountable,” Comer said.
Since Comer became the House Oversight chairman, he has been conducting multiple hearings regarding the Biden family and government accountability.
