From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Members of the Committee on Financial Services sit in the tiers of raised chairs (R), while those testifying and audience members sit below (L).

The United States House of Representatives currently has twenty-three congressional committees, of which twenty are standing committees and three are special committees. All but three committees are subdivided into a total of 104 subcommittees, 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]
