  U.S. House Committee on Rules - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Committee on Rules, or (more commonly) Rules Committee, is a committee of the United States House of Representatives.
In 1880, the modern Rules Committee began to emerge from the reorganization of the House Committees.
Although their power to place members in committees and perform other functions was limited by a forced rule change in 1910, the Rules Committee retained its power.

 The Report of the Federal Advisory Committee on Gender-Integrated Training and Related Issues   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The committee members' central means for gathering information has been going directly to the source and conducting discussion groups with randomly selected recruits, instructors, newly assigned service members and their first-line supervisors, as well as interviews with the immediate chain of command, support-group personnel, and recruiters.
The committee also was told at some other installations that recruits did not know who or what the IG was, or that their ability to see a chaplain was controlled and discouraged by the training cadre or merely by their lack of access to a phone.
Regarding trainers, while the committee believes it is important to have at least one same-sex trainer assigned to each operational training unit, the committee underscores the importance of both male and female operational units having trainers of the opposite sex, given the importance of role models.

 Pennsylvania Committee of Safety   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Committee was reappointed in October, 1775, with the addition of some new members, and continued until the middle of the next July, when it was superseded by a Council of Safety appointed by a Provincial Convention.
The local committees had previously exercised this authority, and in a test case it was not given up by the Committee of Philadelphia without a warm debate, but it finally complied with the wish of the Committee of Safety and recognized its jurisdiction.
That the Committee did not trust them is shown by the fact that it held it necessary to send a delegation from its number to the fleet, to be upon the spot to enforce its orders and to summarily suspend any disobedient officer.
