Congressional committees are the source of revenue for projects that produce the cash and jobs in various districts. It is where the "pork barrel" is located and having a vote on that committee insures a congressman of a "piece of the pie" for the folks back home.

The two main political parties in the House and Senate assign Members to committees, using a three-stage process. * Stage One - Member requests: At the beginning of a new Congress, Members request assignments to the committees they prefer. The incumbent Members (those who are not new) usually keep the committee assignments they have because they have expertise and seniority. * Stage Two - Party approval: Each political party uses a committee in charge of committee assignments to recommend assignments. This committee on committees matches the Member requests with available committee seats, prepares and approves an assignment slate for each committee, and submits all slates to the full party for approval. The full party meets to approve the recommendations. * Stage Three - Full Chamber approval: Each committee (now made up of members from each political party) submits its slate to the full Chamber for approval. When a committee member resigns or is assigned to another committee, all of Congress is notified.
The Rules Committee is such an important committee in the house because this "Traffic cop" can give priority to the bills that are most important. It can also kill a bill by not letting it get to the floor. :)

One of the reasons the Senate Judiciary Committee is so important because it allows disputes to be settled between states in the U.S. This committee is also important because it allows high level cases to be tried and ruled on and also allows legal cases of the government to be tried in the highest court.
