Most meaningful legislative activity happens in committee meetings, where committee members debate proposed legislation. These meetings are open to the public.
Each committee has a Chair, who controls the committee meeting agenda (and thus, the legislation to be considered).
Committee jurisdiction, memberships, and appointments all require City Council approval.
Chicago City Council is currently composed of 20 Committees.
