With the US elections a month away, speculation is intensifying on how the results will impact the make-up of Congress. K&L Gates’ Public Policy and Law group is pleased to share with you “2012 Election Preview: the Projected Impact on Congressional Committees,” a pre-election guide, which forecasts the likely changes to the committees in both the House and Senate.
The projections are based on standard succession, news reports, and information gleaned from staff members on Capitol Hill. The guide shows the roster of each House and Senate standing committee, noting which members are not returning and projecting the new committee chairmen and ranking members. In addition to a potential shift in party control in the Senate, term limits imposed by the Republicans will result in changes to the leadership of several House and Senate committees.
We still plan to release our complete election guide on Wednesday, November 7, the day after the election. The complete guide will include more extensive information on new members of Congress and changes to state delegations and congressional committees. In the meantime, we hope you will find this pre-election guide helpful.
