REFORM Adopted, 203 for and - 165 against, a resolution which makes significant changes in (he House committee system but stops short of a sweeping modernization advocated by some members. The resolution (H Res 1248) was authored by a Democratic panel headed by Rep. Julia Hansen (D-Wash.) and contained some features advocated by.. Republicans. It was chosen over a farther-reaching plan authored by a bipartisan panel headed by Rep. ·Richard Boiling (D-M.) ' Instead of radically changing . the jurisdictions of House committees, the Hansen plan seeks to equalize power among committees and give the minority party, the GOP, more --power within committees. · For example, it weakens the power of the Ways and. Means chairman by requiring the c o m m i t t e e to have s u b c o m m i t t e e s , a n d slightly diminishes the "traffic cop" function of the Rules Com mittee.
