Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Harley Rouda (CA-48) made opening remarks in the Committee on Oversight & Reform hearing entitled “H.R.1: Strenthening Ethics Rules for the Executive Branch,” including the statement below: 

“Now, more than ever, we do need to restore decency, transparency, and responsibility by introducing ethics reforms for the President, Vice President, and all federal officers and employees.

“This administration has had, at best, a very awkward relationship with ethics and integrity. We must make sure the President and his family members do not use the presidency to enrich themselves at the expense of the American people. I know every single one of my colleagues here didn’t come to Congress to get rich—they came here because they believe in America, and putting service above self and country over party.”
