Committees in Congress
Elaine Fultz, PhD
Minimum of 12 students in order to run.
Most of the work that Congress does occurs in committees. They are the rst stop in the legislative process, where bills are referred after introduction. They are the venue for public hearings and debate. In and around committee mark-up sessions, members negotiate, make deals, and develop compromises. This class will examine the operation of congressional committees, trace changes in their roles and powers over time, and review committee action on several landmark pieces of social legislation.
