Joyce Selected to Serve on Modernization Committee
WASHINGTON, DC – This week, Congressmen Dave Joyce (OH-14) announced that he has been selected to serve on the House Select Committee on Modernization.
The Select Committee, which was established by H.Res. 6 in January of 2019, is tasked to investigate, study, make findings, hold public hearings, and develop recommendations to make Congress work better for the American people. It is one of the only truly bipartisan committees in Congress, with an equal number of Republican and Democratic members. Over the last two years, Democrats and Republicans on the Select Committee have worked together to pass 97 recommendations to make Congress more effective, efficient, accessible, and transparent for the American people.
“During a time of heightened partisanship and incivility, I’m eager to be a part of this truly bipartisan committee,” said Joyce. “I look forward to working with all of my colleagues on the Committee to find solutions to the challenges facing this legislative body, especially how we can create a more meaningful budget process and make better use of technology. The American people deserve a more efficient and transparent government. Institutional reform can be difficult, but with all of us wanting to help Congress more effectively carry out its constitutional duties, I think this Committee can achieve a great deal of progress.”
On Thursday, the Select Committee held a listening session to hear from outside organizations that are invested in modernization and government reform efforts about issues they would like the Committee to focus on in the 117th Congress. You can watch the full listening session here.
