WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney will be the acting chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee after the death Thursday of chairman Elijah Cummings, a senior Democratic leadership aide said.

Maloney is No. 2 Democrat in seniority on the panel. The caucus process to elect a permanent chair will be announced at a later time, the aide said.
