A standing committee is a permanent government committee that oversees a significant and broad subject, performs research, and makes suggestions on the subject. They generally are fairly large compared to other kinds of committees and have both Executives and members of the Administrative Branch sitting in them.
Standing committees prepare legislation appropriate to their subject, they research and evaluate issues pertaining to their subject, and they discuss matters that fall into their general oversight.
Members of standing committees are appointed at the beginning of each trimester to their committees and they serve until the end of the trimester. All standing committees begin their first meetings after two weeks since the opening of the trimester and once all members have been appointed to the committee.
