New Chairs and Committees for 110th Congress
With the shift to a Democrat-led 110 Congress, the chairs and ranking
minority members on committees and subcommittees also have changed.
Some reorganization also occurred. The House and Senate
Appropriations Committees each have created a new Financial Services and
General Government subcommittee that has jurisdiction over, among other
things, funding for the federal Judiciary and the General Services
Administration, which builds the Judiciary’s courthouses. The structure
of the committees authorizing courthouse projects, a necessary step
before appropriations may be obligated by the GSA, remain unchanged in
the House and Senate.
