This committee was originally established to assist the House leadership in guiding and controlling the flow of legislation to the House floor. It was a means of preventing a flood of useless legislation, and of bringing order and some reasonable sense of priorities to House consideration of legislation. Only long afterwards did the Rules Committee take it upon Itself actually to block the flow of certain major proposals toward the floor—bills which usually had the determined opposition of some influential House members. By 1961, that practice had become so ingrained that the late President John F. Kennedy, aided by the late Speaker Sam Rayburn, drove through a change in Rules Committee structure which permitted the installation of two additional liberal Democratic members. It was assumed they would help break deliberate log jams created by conservative committee membership. The change had some fairly limited effects, but on the whole did not yield the results anticipated. In 1963, the Rules Committee, under leadership of the veteran chairman Howard I Smith of Virginia, seems to be functioning with all its old power. 5 Smith, under heavy pressure, finally has said that in January his committee will hold hearings on the highly controversial Kennedy-Johnson civil rights bill calling for—among! other things—freer use of public accommodations by Negroes, j All aside from other aspect* of the matter, criticism is descending upon Smith for this declared intent to have hearings.; The point is made that the House Judiciary Committee I already has had extensive hearings on the substantive content of that bilL It is further contended that the Rules Committee, j basically a legislative "traffic agency," is not charged with consideration of bills on their substantive merits. It is supposed simply to meet and decide how to handle these bills. Beyond this, the whole question arises again of the wisdom of allowing a small group of House members, often quite unrepresentative of the larger body, to act virtually as final arbiter in determining what bills shall come to the House floor. It seems so basic it should not have to be said: All major matters, including the most controversial, ought in a freely working democracy to have a full airing and then be voted up or down. Critics of a particular proposed course of action often argue against It on the ground that Congress, in Its wisdom, has "not. acted on the question." They Imply they would accept such a course if Congress did act. But the Rules Committee today, not just in civil rights but in many matters, labors unabashedly to prevent the very kind of open, free decision by the nation's lawmakers which our system is supposed to assure.
