Best Answer

A standing committe is any group of people in either the House or the Senate that is joined together to review bills and resolutions. In the senate there a many standing committees. bills and resolutions get presented on the floor and then are assigned to the committee which would be dealing with that specific issue type. The committee evaluates the bill or resolution and determines whether or not it is worth it to be debated on the senate floor. The House is basically the same.
