Guess the Committee!

When a bill is introduced in Congress, the first thing that happens to it is that it gets assigned to a congressional committee. Since the committees of the House and Senate are each responsible for certain topics of legislation — called their jurisdiction — knowing about the bill should give you a hint about which committee it was assigned to. For descriptions of committee jurisdictions, see our committees page.

Using the information provided about a random bill in Congress, try to guess which committee(s) it was assigned to.
