Do you want to know which House members will serve on the education committees in the 2015-16 biennium? Who will play roles as members of the agriculture, health and human services or transportation committees?

The committee schedule released Nov. 26 has been altered slightly regarding afternoon meetings. Those scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. have been changed to 12:45 p.m., and final committee blocks on Tuesday and Wednesday are scheduled to end at 4:30 p.m., not 4:15 p.m.

Committees are where the bulk of the legislative activity takes place in the early weeks of the legislative session. According to a brochure from the nonpartisan House Public Information Services Department, “The committee holds public hearings on bills to put each bill into its best form. During the bill’s hearing, the committee can take testimony from the bill’s sponsors, the general public and experts in the areas the bill affects.”

For electronic alerts of meeting schedules and information, sign up here. All meetings are open to the public.
