These are great information sources because congresional committees have the legal authority to swear in witnesses, feature information from a variety of sources and viewpoints, document committee members questioninf of witnesses and witness responses, and because congressional committees are responsible for approving legislation, funding government programs, and conducting oversight of these programs.
