Special, select, and other committees of the U.S. Senate[edit]

There are five non-standing, select, or special committees, which are treated similarly to standing committees.[1]

Committee Chair Vice Chair
Indian Affairs John Hoeven (R-ND) Tom Udall (D-NM)
Ethics (Select) Johnny Isakson (R-GA) Chris Coons (D-DE)
Intelligence (Select) Richard Burr (R-NC) Mark Warner (D-VA)
Aging (Special) Susan Collins (R-ME) Bob Casey (D-PA)
International Narcotics Control Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

Committee classes[edit]

Senate committees are divided, according to relative importance, into three categories: Class A, Class B, and Class C. Individual Senators are in general limited to service on two Class A committees and one Class B committee. Assignment to Class C committees is made without reference to a member's service on any other panels.[2]

Standing committees[edit]

Standing committees are permanent bodies with specific responsibilities spelled out in the Senate's rules. Twelve of the sixteen current standing committees are Class A panels. They are Agriculture; Appropriations; Armed Services; Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; Commerce, Science, and Transportation; Energy and Natural Resources; Environment and Public Works; Finance; Foreign Relations; Governmental Affairs; Judiciary; and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.[citation needed]

There are four Class B standing committees: Budget; Rules and Administration; Small Business; and Veterans' Affairs. There are currently no Class C standing committees.[citation needed]

Other, select and special committees[edit]

Other (i.e., Indian Affairs), select and special committees are ranked as Class B or Class C committees. They are created for clearly specified purposes. There are currently two Class B committees: the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Special Committee on Aging, and two Class C committees: the Committee on Indian Affairs and the Select Committee on Ethics.[citation needed]

Joint committees[edit]

Joint Committees are used for purposes of legislative and administrative coordination. At present there are four: the Joint Economic Committee (Class B), the Joint Committee on the Library (Class C), the Joint Committee on Printing (Class C), and the Joint Committee on Taxation (Class C).[citation needed]

Jurisdiction[edit]

Standing committees in the Senate have their jurisdiction set by three primary sources: Senate Rules, ad hoc Senate Resolutions, and Senate Resolutions related to committee funding. To see an overview of the jurisdictions of standing committees in the Senate, see Standing Rules of the United States Senate, Rule XXV.
