Question and answer

initial process of creating a bill. c. The creation of smaller groups has allowed Congress to divide work, which allows Congress to work more efficiently. b. Smaller groups meet with supporters and opponents of a bill to learn about more about it, this allows for more efficiency and opportunities to ask necessary questions. d. Congressional Committees allow the public to learn about working bills through public hearings and investigations.
Answer: A Congressional committee is a smaller body within the United States legislature which has specific responsibility for a special issue. [ Committees carry out a wide variety of functions, including fact-finding, reporting to Congress on the conduct of other branches of the government, proposing legislation and approving nominees for public office. Many scholars of American politics have
identified committees as the method by which Congress does most of its work. There are several different types of Congressional committees. Standing committees are probably the most numerous and important. Standing committees are permanent bodies which employ their own staff on an ongoing basis and have responsibility for major areas of policy making. For instance, the House Armed Services Committee is responsible for all legislation related to the defense budget and the military in the House of Representatives. It controls six subcommittees and has substantial influence on national defense policy. Select and special committees are Congressional committees convened for a specific purpose, usually to investigate an issue of national concern. They investigate and produce reports, but seldom produce legislation. A small number of select and special committees have evolved into permanent committees which produce legislation, but these are the exception. The last type of Congressional committee is the joint committee, which includes both Representatives and Senators. ]
