This is a series I started at Daily Kos and Congress Matters. I figured I would offer it here, too. If ya’ll don’t like it, let me know. I can handle the falmes.
Welcome to the third installment of Considered Forthwith. This approximately weekly series looks at the various committees in the House and the Senate. Committees are the workshops of our democracy. This is where bills are considered, revised, and occasionally advance for consideration by the House and Senate. Most committees also have the authority to exercise oversight of related executive branch agencies.
If you want to read previous dairies in the series, search using the “forthwith” tag. I welcome criticisms and corrections in the comments.
