        Congressional Committees | Crash Course Government and Politics

        In this episode, Craig Benzine discuses the role of committees in congress. We'll talk about standing committees, joint committees, conference committees, and caucuses (and not the candidate-choosing kinds), as well as the staff agencies that help advise these committees and congresspeople. As most bills never even make it to the house and senate floors for a vote, the role of committees, and their respective chairpersons as gatekeeper, is pretty important.
