Meadows wins government oversight leadership post

U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows has been appointed vice chairman the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, under the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

"Doing more with less is something that America's small business job creators understand and Rep. Meadow's small business leadership experience is extremely valuable for the committee," said committee chairman Dan Issa. "Rep. Meadows has already been making important contributions to the agenda of the Government Operations Subcommittee, which is charged with saving money by making government work better, and his role as Vice-Chair will increase his involvement."
The freshman Republican from Highlands, a restaurant owner who became a real estate developer, said he was honored to receive the appointment.

"Under Chairman Issa's watch, the committee has aggressively investigated job-killing regulations that have put businesses out of work and sought to reform our broken government," he said. "I am committed to working with Chairman Issa to streamline how our government operates so it becomes more efficient, less costly and accountable to the American people."
