WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep.-elect Earl L. “Buddy” Carter recently earned appointment to several posts with seats on the Homeland Security, Education and the Workforce, and Oversight and Government Reform committees.
Carter represents Georgia’s 1st District, which includes Liberty and Long counties. Congress will convene Jan. 6.
The Homeland Security Committee was established in 2002 to provide oversight over the Department of Homeland Security and better protect Americans against terrorist threats and natural disasters.
The Education and the Workforce Committee is charged with advancing policies that strengthen America’s schools, protect the rights of children and families, and empower the workforce.
The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has legislative jurisdiction over the District of Columbia, the government-procurement process, federal-personnel systems, the Postal Service and other matters. Its primary responsibility, however, is oversight of virtually every aspect of government.
