Do I Capitalize Committee or Subcommittee?
Do not abbreviate.
Capitalize when part of a formal name. For example,
- the House Committee on Ethics
Do not capitalize “committee” in shortened versions of long committee names. For example,
- the Special Senate Select Committee to Investigate Improper Labor-Management Practices
- the rackets committee
Lowercase when used with the name of legislative body’s full committee. For example,
- an Infrastructure and Transportation subcommittee
Capitalize when a subcommittee has a proper name of its own. For example,
- the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations
