Committee Project BY Presley Daggett

Standing Committee: Congress set up permanent groups to oversee bills that dealt with certain kinds of issues. They go from congress to congress. The house and senate both create their own standing committee when they became majority in 1995.
Sub Committee: Each subcommittee specializes in a subcategory of its standing committee responsibility. Subcommittee and Standing committee usually continue from one congress to another.
Select Committee: Study one specific issue and report their findings to the Senate or the House. The issues can include, matters of great public concern such as organized crime, overlooked problems such as hunger, and problems of interest group such as owners of small business who claims congress didn’t meet their needs.
