First elected to Congress in 1992, Carolyn B. Maloney is a recognized progressive national leader with extensive accomplishments on financial services, national security, the economy, and women’s issues. She is currently Chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and former Chair of the Joint Economic Committee, the first woman to hold both of thesepositions.

Rep. Maloney started her career as an ESL *English as a Second Language) teacher in East Harlem. When her program was cut, her colleagues elected her as their advocate to restore funding - and she succeeded, setting an example that has extended throughout her career, first working with the NYC Department of Education and then as a legislative staffer in Albany. After gaining that experience, in 1982 she ran a long-shot challenge to an incumbent City Council Member in a district that spanned East Harlem, South Bronx, Manhattan Valley, and Carnegie Hill - and she won an improbably upset.

Rep. Maloney’s career has been a series of firsts. She was the first woman ever to represent the Upper East Side on the New York City Council, and she became the first-ever Chair of the City Council’s Contracts Committee, after working with then-Council Speaker Peter Vallone of Astoria, to establish that panel. As Contracts Chair, she served as a vigilant watchdog patrolling the City budget for waste, fraud, and abuse, and authored the law that created the City’s widely hailed “Vendex” system that made City contracts with private-sector and non-profit vendors more transparent. On the Council also she successfully fought to clean up government contracts, wrote legislation for public financing of elections, introduced NYS' first bill to recognize same-sex couples, and drawing on her experience as the first Council Member to give birth, fought to pass inclusive paid family leave - policies she continued fighting for on the national stage to this day. Rep. Maloney was also the first City Council member to give birth while serving in office.

Rep. Maloney is also the author ofRumors of our Progress Have Been Greatly Exaggerated: Why Women’s Lives Aren’t Getting any Easier and how we can Make Real Progress for Ourselves and Our Daughters, which has been used as a textbook in women’s studies courses.

Maloney has authored and passed more than 74measures, either as stand-alone bills or as measures incorporated into larger legislation packages. Twelve of these bills were signed into law at formal (and rare) Presidential Signing Ceremonies.

She has authored landmark legislation including; the JamesZadroga9/11 Health and CompensationAct, its reauthorization, and the Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Actto make sure all those suffering health aliments associated with 9/11 get the medical care and compensation they need and deserve; the Debbie Smith Act, which increases funding for law enforcement to process DNA rape kits and has been called ‘the most important anti-rape legislation in history;’ and the Credit CARD Act, also known as the Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights, which according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), has saved consumers more than $16 billion annually since it was signed into law in 2009. Her legislative achievements have been featured in three films: the documentaryThe Card Game, the documentaryOverdrawn!,and the movieA Life Interrupted.

As Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, Congresswoman Maloney is leading the fight to protect the 2020 Census from the Trump Administration’s partisan, political attacks and to ensure that the United States Postal Service (USPS) is able to operate at its full capacity. She is the author of the Fair and Accurate Census Act which would ensure that Census Bureau professionals have the time and resources they need to complete a full and accurate count, the Delivering for America Act to restore USPS services to January 2020 standards and ensure they stay at that level through the pandemic, and the Nonpartisan Postmaster General Act to prevent partisan politics from including in the Postal Service.

In the House Democratic Caucus, she has servedas a Regional Whip and as Vice-Chair of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.

On the House Financial Services Committee she has worked to modernize financial services laws and regulations, strengthen consumer protections, and institute more vigilant oversight of the safety and soundness of our nation’s banking industry. In the 114th Congress, she was selected by her Committee colleagues to be Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises and continuedin this position in the 115th Congress. In the 116th Congress, up until her election as Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, she served as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship, and Capital Markets. She continues to serve as a member of this subcommittee and the Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance.

Maloney served on the historic conference committee for the Dodd-Frank financial reforms, which also created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Her Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights (the Credit CARD Act) was signed into law by President Obama in Spring of 2009. She is currently working to curb the use of anonymous shell companies that finance illicit drugs, human trafficking, and terrorism and to pass her Overdraft Protection Act, which would protect consumers from abusive overdraft fees.

As a senior member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Maloney’s legislation has helped government work more efficiently and has saved hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars.

As co-founder of the House 9/11 Commission Caucus, Maloney helped author and pass legislation which created the 9/11 Commission and, later, to implement all of the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations for improving intelligence gathering—described as the most influential intelligence bill in decades.The James Zadroga 9/11 Health Care and Compensation Act, her bill to provide health care and compensation for 9/11 first responders, residents and workers near Ground Zero passed Congress in late 2010 was signed into law by President Obama on January 2, 2011. The Zadroga Act's World Trade Center Health Program was permanently extendedby the bill’s reauthorization with an allocation of $8 billion in December 2015. The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund was permanently extended with the passage of theNever Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11thVictim Compensation Fund Act in summer 2019.

A champion for domestic and international women’s issues, Rep. Maloney has authored and helped pass legislation that targets sex trafficking, including the first bill that focused on the ‘demand’ side of human trafficking to punish the perpetrators of these heinous crimes. She is co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Human Trafficking, and previously served as the co-chair of the Trafficking Task Force of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues.
