About Aldermanic Committees
Aldermanic committees serve an important role in reviewing proposed legislation.
When a Bill is introduced, it is referred by the President of the Board of Aldermen to a committee tasked with reviewing Bills that address that topic. Committees hold meetings and hearings at the call of their chairmen and chairwomen.
Once a Bill is "in committee," the Bill can be scheduled for a public hearing by that committee, at which testimony in support of or against the Bill is heard. The committee will typically hold a vote on whether to recommend that the full Board of Alderman pass the Bill.
Committees may also play a role in government oversight, and they have subpoena power pursuant to the City Charter.
