He is also a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Matt sits on the House Steering and Policy Committee, which advises House Democratic Leadership on policy and Committee appointments, and is a Regional Whip.

Prior to coming to Congress, Matt worked as an attorney with Munley, Munley & Cartwright for 25 years. He spent his time at the firm fighting for working families, and served as a member of the Board of Governors of the American Association for Justice.
