Democrats name new House oversight leadership

By Ed O'Keefe

Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced their slate of subcommittee ranking members Thursday.

Here are the new top Democrats on the subcommittees of importance to federal workers and government operations:

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) will serve as ranking member on the subcommittee responsible for federal workers, the U.S. Postal Service and labor policy. Lynch, whose family includes 17 current and former postal workers, chaired the subcommittee in the last Congress.

Edolphus "Ed" Towns (D-N.Y.), the full committee's former chairman, will serve as ranking member on the subcommittee for government operations and financial management. The panel deals with government management and accounting measures, federal property, and reorganizations of the executive branch.

Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.), will be the top Democrat on the subcommittee handling issues related to health care, the District of Columbia, the Census Bureau and the National Archives.
