Category: Fact Finding

Committees hold many hearings that are intended to assess local, national, or international conditions or dynamics. We classify such hearings as Fact Finding hearings. Typically, Fact Finding hearings feature one or more panels of witnesses who are selected for their expertise or their representation of a particular group. With few exceptions, if a hearing includes an Executive Branch witness, we classify it as a Policy or Legislative hearing, not a Fact Finding hearing.
