Ethics and Good Government

Rep. Dean believes in treating everyone with decency – and that doing so can help us develop a more honest, respectful, and inclusive political system.

As public servants, elected officials must be held to high standards. The Constitution requires Congress to exercise oversight responsibilities, and as a member of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Dean takes that mandate seriously.

During her first week in Congress, Rep. Dean cosponsored H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which has passed the House. H.R. 1 would expand opportunities for voting, tamp down on dark money, fight back against gerrymandering, and tighten ethics rules for government employees. Along with Senator Bob Casey, Rep. Dean also introduced H.R. 2950, the Know Conflicts Act, which would provide a clearinghouse for information about financial conflicts of interest faced by the President.

More broadly, Rep. Dean prizes good governance – and works hard to ensure that government operates fairly, efficiently and effectively.
