Category: Policy

Committees hold many hearings to review executive branch policy making, regulatory activity, and implementation of laws. Typically such hearings feature at least one executive branch witness who can be questioned. These hearings may also feature subsequent panels of private witnesses or experts to provide broader perspective. On many committees, Policy hearings are the most common category. These hearings may have a contentious or cooperative tone between members of the committee and Executive Branch witnesses.
