Abstract

Political scientists and commentators have generally believed that Congressional committees wield a great deal of power over how federal spending is distributed. But new research from Christopher R. Berry and Anthony Fowler suggests that committee positions actually hold relatively little influence. Committee chairs, on the other hand, are far more important than had been previously thought.
