House Committee Hearings: Arranging Witnesses

Christopher M. Davis
Analyst on Congress and the Legislative Process

Selecting witnesses is often one of the most important tasks in planning a hearing. House committees and subcommittees pay careful attention to which viewpoints will be represented, who should testify, and the order and format for presenting witnesses. Witnesses do not have an inherent right to appear at a hearing, but must be invited by a committee or subcommittee in order to testify; committees and subcommittees also may subpoena reluctant witnesses to appear at a hearing.
