House Committees

When a bill is introduced in either the House of Representatives or the Senate, it is sent to one of the committees in its own chamber that deals with that particular type of issue. At the point of introduction, the bill will be given a number and will be made available on the Legislature's Web site.

There are 23 standing House committees and 20 standing Senate committees. These committees contain from three to 30 members. The Appropriations Committees are divided into subcommittees where bills with monetary implications are assigned for discussion, analysis, and revision before being presented to the full committee for action.

These committees are an important part of the legislative process, as explained in the How Committees Work Web page.
