Pursuant to House Rule XI, clause 3(b)(8)(A), and Committee Rules 17A(b)(1)(A) and 17A(c)(1), the
Chairman and Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics have jointly decided to extend the matter
regarding Representative Roger Williams, which was transmitted to the Committee by the Office of
Congressional Ethics on May 13, 2016.
The Committee notes that the mere fact of a referral or an extension, and the mandatory disclosure
of such an extension and the name of the subject of the matter, does not itself indicate that any
violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee.
The Committee will announce its course of action in this matter on or before Thursday, August 11,
