House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
Congressman Woodall is a Member of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the 113th Congress. This Committee helps Congress fulfill one of its most critical roles—holding the Executive Branch accountable to the American people. The Committee has oversight jurisdiction over virtually all federal activities, as well as legislative jurisdiction over government operations and the District of Columbia. Recently, the Committee has been actively investigating the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, the fallout from Operation Fast and Furious, the status of failed government loans to companies like Solyndra, and more.
Congressman Woodall looks forward to using his post on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee to make sure that constituents in the Seventh District are getting the best possible service from their federal government, and that all other federal employees share his passion for service and his staff’s dedication to those they serve.

House Committee on Rules

Known as the legislative "gatekeeper," Rules considers every single piece of legislation before they arrive on the House Floor for a vote. In addition to deciding exactly how each bill comes to the House Floor—from how many amendments are allowed to how long Members are able to debate—Rules has jurisdiction over the standing rules of the House, internal organization of the House, the Congressional budget process, ethics, and relations between the Executive and Judicial Branches of our federal government. As a Member of the Rules Committee, Congressman Woodall will be able to work to ensure that every piece of legislation reaches the House Floor in a balanced, principled manner.

House Budget Committee
The House Budget Committee, created as part of the 1974 Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act, is responsible for preparing an annual Concurrent Resolution on the Budget. The “budget” sets total levels of spending for discretionary spending, or those programs such as defense, which are subject to the annual appropriations process. Apart from setting spending levels, the budget is a comprehensive analysis of the federal government’s operations, spending trajectory, policy priorities, and challenges ahead. As a member of this prestigious committee, Congressman Woodall is responsible for working with Chairman Paul Ryan to craft a budget resolution, monitor federal spending through Congressional oversight, review all bills and resolutions pertaining to the budget. The 113th Congress will additionally involve continuation of Budget Process Reform initiatives introduced in the last Congress.
