WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at 10:00 AM ET, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) will join the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, chaired by Rep. Sam Graves (MO-06), for an oversight hearing with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. 

The White House is used to House Democrats running cover and sweeping Congressional oversight under the rug,said Rep. Owens. “Unfortunately for President Biden, House Republicans have a commitment to accountability and this hearing is yet another opportunity to finally get the answers the American people deserve.

When: 10:00 AM ET on Wednesday, September 20, 2023

Where: 2167 Rayburn House Office Building
