Legislative Committees

You can find the rosters of the Legislative Committees at the below link. Once at the page click on any group to see its roster. For each committee one house has been designated as the “house of initial action.” This is the house where the legislation will be initiated, for anything referred to that committee. See the link to this list below as well.
