It has not been quite a month yet since Republicans have officially taken charge of the U.S. House of Representatives.
However, now that some organizational business of the chamber is out of the way, U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) said he expected the oversight role Republicans promised during the 2022 campaign to be underway soon.
During an appearance on Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," Moore said some committee hearings would start as soon as next week.
"I think real soon," he said. "We're populating the committees right now. We just got through the chairman process. We had to elect our chairmen. So, as we populate the committees and get the members, the hearings, like I said, actually start next week. I think all of the committee chairs will be in place. The members will be in place. The subcommittee chairs will be in place."
"You'll then start seeing the ball roll," Moore continued. "You'll start seeing the direction we're going, and hopefully, the American people will see a restoration of trust in the federal government, which many of us have lost."
