Senators are assigned to serve on committees, in which they

review bills, or proposed laws. There are 20 committees, 68

subcommittees and four joint committees. Each committee focuses on

a different topic, including budget, health, education, foreign

relations, transportation and homeland security. Once a bill is

passed in committee, all senators are responsible for voting on it.

The Senate also has the power to impeach the president.
