               Mr. Deutch, from the Committee on Ethics, 
                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

    In accordance with Rule 18(e)(2) of the Committee on Ethics 
(Committee), the Committee hereby submits the following Report 
to the House of Representatives:

                      I. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS

    On September 22, 2021, the Committee convened for the 
purpose of considering the July 29, 2021, arrest of 
Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, for Crowding, Obstructing, 
or Incommoding, during a protest outside a Senate Office 
Building in Washington, D.C. Representative Jackson Lee was 
released following her arrest. Representative Jackson Lee paid 
a $50 fine following her arrest. Court records indicate that 
the legal proceedings have been resolved with no further 
action.
    The Committee voted against impanelling an investigative 
subcommittee in this matter. The Committee considered the scope 
and nature of the conduct described above and determined that 
review by an investigative subcommittee is not required in this 
matter.
    The Committee has determined to take no further action in 
this matter, and upon publication of this Report, considers the 
matter closed.

            II. STATEMENT UNDER HOUSE RULE XIII, CLAUSE 3(C)

    The Committee made no special oversight findings in this 
Report. No budget statement is submitted. No funding is 
authorized by any measure in this Report.

                                  [all]
