Abstract:

Do committee systems that are given powerful procedural tools to impact the legislative process effectively use those tools to influence legislative outcomes? This question is explored using bill history data from twelve state legislatures in the 2001-02 legislative session. I find that chambers that provide for more powerful/autonomous committee systems amend bills less on the floor, but the agreement rate concerning the final outcome between the floor and the committee of reference is lower.
