Congressman Kim Named to Bipartisan Select
Committee to Oversee Coronavirus Response

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) was named to the bipartisan House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis, where he will serve as one of twelve members of the House tasked with conducting oversight over programs aimed at ending the Coronavirus pandemic and helping address the economic impact it has had on the American people. 

“We are in the midst of the largest national security crisis to hit our homeland, and we are responding with the largest emergency response package in or nation’s history.  We have one chance to get this recovery right; our actions will either help put an end to the pandemic and get people back to work, or we’ll throw billions in taxpayer money away to waste, fraud and abuse,” said Congressman Kim. “As a member on this important Select Committee, I will fight every day to make sure every hard-earned penny from American taxpayers is spent wisely and impactfully to support families in dire need. This is not a time for partisanship.  I will take on this assignment with the same approach to service as I did when I worked under both Republicans and Democrats as a national security official.  The mission is to save lives and help American families, including those in Burlington and Ocean counties, at their time of most need.”  

Among its duties, the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis will provide oversight over taxpayer funds spent to help businesses, especially small businesses, to weather the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, crack down on price gouging and other abuse by companies attempting to profiteer during the pandemic, and work to ensure the federal response to increase testing and tracing is done with the best interests of the American public in mind.
