House Committee on Rules
Congressman Woodall sits on the powerful House Committee on Rules, and is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process. Known as the legislative "gatekeeper," Rules considers every single piece of legislation before they arrive on the House Floor for a vote. In addition to deciding exactly how each bill comes to the House Floor—from how many amendments are allowed to how long Members are able to debate—Rules has jurisdiction over the standing rules of the House, internal organization of the House, the Congressional budget process, ethics, and relations between the Executive and Judicial Branches of our federal government. As a Member of the Rules Committee, Congressman Woodall will be able to work to ensure that every piece of legislation reaches the House Floor in a balanced, principled manner.

House Budget Committee
The House Budget Committee, created as part of the 1974 Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act, is responsible for preparing an annual Concurrent Resolution on the Budget. The “budget” sets total levels of spending for discretionary spending, or those programs such as defense, which are subject to the annual appropriations process. Apart from setting spending levels, the budget is a comprehensive analysis of the federal government’s operations, spending trajectory, policy priorities, and challenges ahead. As a member of this prestigious committee, Congressman Woodall is responsible for working with Chairman Paul Ryan to craft a budget resolution, monitor federal spending through Congressional oversight, review all bills and resolutions pertaining to the budget. The 113th Congress will additionally involve continuation of Budget Process Reform initiatives introduced in the last Congress.
