This is a list of U.S. Congressional committees (standing committees, joint committees and special committees) that are currently operating the United States Senate, the upper house of the United States Congress. ...

Notes

  1. ^  Chairmanship of joint committees alternates with each Congress between the senior majority Senator and the senior majority Representative.
  2. ^  Because the list did not specify ranking minority members of joint committees, I compared entries in the Congressional Biographical Dictionary to determine length of service. For purpose of seniority on joint committees, total time in Congress--Senate and House--is counted.
