2. In chapter eighteen of the Reader, the three â€œprincipalsâ€ of committees (home constituencies, the party, and the parent chamber) are discussed.

3. Rules matter. Both chapter eight in Congress and chapter twenty-two in the Reader examine how the majority in Congress can â€œget its way.â€ Explain several of the key ways that the majority party can do this, especially in the House. What are the limits to the majority wielding its power?
