House Committee on Rules
In addition, Stivers has been tapped to serve on the Committee on Rules, which is charged with determining
which bills reach the House Floor for a vote. The Committee also determines how long and under what rules
the full body of the House will debate each bill.
The Committee on Rules was created on April 2, 1789, making it one of the oldest standing House committees.
Historically, the Committee is often known as “The Speaker’s Committee” because it was chaired by the
Speaker up until 1910 and is the means through which the Speaker of the House manages the House Floor.
Stivers also serves as chairman of the Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the House for the Rules
Committee. The Subcommittee has jurisdiction over processes and procedures of the House, relations between
the two houses of Congress, relations between Congress and the Judiciary, and internal operations of the House.
