Maloney Applauds Biden Day One Executive Actions

WASHINGTON, DC – After attending President Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, applauded President Biden’s day one executive actions to set the country on the path to build back better.

“I was honored to be at the Capitol today to witness the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. As we turn a new page in our nation’s story, we must move forward united, in purpose and action, to rebuild our nation.

“Today’s executive actions set us on a course to build back better from the havoc wreaked by the COVID crisis and divisions that have deepened over the last four years. Through his historic actions taken on his first day in office, President Biden has made his priorities clear. We will defeat the COVID pandemic through science and a coordinated national response, provide Americans with the economic relief they need, combat climate change, work towards racial equity with a focus on underserved communities, and restore ethics and trust in public office – including in the White House and throughout the executive branch.

“As Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, I especially applaud today’s actions on the 2020 Census and transparency and ethics in government. By reversing President Trump’s unconstitutional effort to exclude undocumented immigrants from the reapportionment count, we are one step closer to ensuring a fair, accurate, and complete census. President Biden has also mandated that all executive branch appointees sign the strongest ethics pledge in history, which will ensure that government officials work in the interest of the American people, and not for personal gain.

“Last year, I released an Oversight Committee report detailing the economic and health benefits, exceeding $3.5 trillion, to New York if we uphold the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change, and today, President Biden took the first step to rejoin this worldwide pact.

“And to accomplish this and so much more, he has nominated a Cabinet that reflects the American people and our diverse lived experiences. I am proud today to call Joe Biden our President and Kamala Harris our Vice President, and I look forward to all we can achieve, for the people, together.”
