Instructions to Congress members

  2. Subscribe to all discussion lists with a "web only" option, except the committees on which you wish to be active. Even though you will not be on all committees, you will want to be able to send mail to them, and to be able to review their discussions.
  3. Each committee should have a chairman. Committees with more than two people named should elect a chairman.

Chairman Responsibilities

  • Moderate the committee discussion list.
