Committee Assignments House Of Representatives Majority

Posted on by Fem

The United States House of Representatives currently has 21 congressional committees; 20 standing committees and one select committee. All but three committees, the Budget Committee, the Ethics Committee, and the House Administration Committee, are subdivided into subcommittees of which there are a total of 95, each with its own leadership.

The modern House committees were brought into existence through the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946. This bill reduced the number of House committees from 48 to 19, as well as restructured the jurisdictions of the committees.[1]

The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary, also called the House Judiciary Committee, is a standing committee of the United States House of Representatives. It is charged with overseeing the administration of justice within the federal courts, administrative agencies and Federal law enforcement entities. The Judiciary Committee is also the committee responsible for impeachments of federal officials. Because of the legal nature of its oversight, committee members usually have a legal background, but this is not required.

In the 115th Congress, the chairman of the committee is RepublicanBob Goodlatte of Virginia, and the ranking minority member was DemocratJohn Conyers of Michigan. On November 26, 2017, Conyers stepped down from his position as ranking member, while he faces an ethics investigation.[1] On November 28, 2017, Jerrold Nadler of New York was named as acting ranking member. [2]

History[edit]

The committee was created on June 6, 1813 for the purpose of considering legislation related to the judicial system. This committee approved articles of impeachment against Presidents in three instances: the impeachment of Andrew Johnson (1868), the impeachment process against Richard Nixon (1974), and the impeachment of Bill Clinton (1998).

Subcommittees[edit]

Task forces[edit]

Antitrust Task Force: 108th Congress[edit]

Chairman: Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI); Ranking member: John Conyers (D-MI)

The Antitrust Task Force during the 108th Congress existed from March 26, 2003, to September 26, 2003. All Judiciary Committee Members also served as members of the Task Force,[4] and conducted hearings and investigations into consolidation of the Bell Telephone Companies.[5]

Antitrust Task Force: 110th Congress[edit]

Chairman: John Conyers (D-MI); Ranking member: Steve Chabot (R-OH)

The Antitrust Task Force during the 110th Congress was established February 28, 2007, as a temporary subcommittee to examine the pending merger between XM Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio.[6] The task force operated like any other subcommittee, except that it only has a six-month term. House Rules limit each full committee to just five subcommittees, and any task force, special subcommittee, or other subunit of a standing committee that is established for a cumulative period longer than six months in a Congress counts against that total.[7] A longer term for the task force would cause the Judiciary Committee to exceed this limit.

Judicial Impeachment: 110th and 111th Congresses[edit]

Chairman: Adam Schiff (D-CA);[8] Ranking member: Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)[8]

Established in September 2008,[9] the Judicial Task force on Judicial Impeachment was to look into charges against District Judge Thomas Porteous.[9] The investigation was not completed by the end of the 110th Congress, and it was reestablished after the 111th Congress convened in January 2009.[10] The responsibilities of the Task Force were expanded to include the case of Judge Samuel B. Kent,[11] leading to hearings[12] and his subsequent impeachment by the full House of Representatives.[13] The Task force finally voted to impeach Porteous on January 21, 2010.
