Assignment of Bills to Committees—Information for the Speaker of the House

(Chart in PDF)

You and only you will decide to which committee each bill is assigned. To give you a starting point to make your decision, here are some suggestions based on the topic of the bill:

  • Education and the Workforce Committee (Education, Youth, Business)
  • Judiciary (Criminal Matters, Constitutional Issues)
  • Ways and Means (Major Taxation Issues)
  • Appropriations (Major Spending Issues, Finance)

You are free to assign each bill as you wish. Just remember to assign an equal number of bills to each committee. Make a check mark above next to the committee each time you assign them a bill.
