Committee Names and Codes

Committees active in the current congress are listed with their committee code. Committee names may change from one congress to the next, but committee codes are persistent across congresses. Use committee codes with the committee: field label. For example, committee: hsed00 finds legislation referred to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce across all congresses, even though the committee's name has changed several times.
