NOTES: As of Oct. 25, 2021. Chairs and Ranking Members are listed at the top of each listing; they are also indicated in Table A1. In addition to the members identified above, the chair and ranking member of the subcommittee’s respective full committee may also serve as ex officio members of the subcommittee. The Senate Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions (HELP) Committee revamped its subcommittee organization during the 114th Congress to organize around very broad issue areas; since it remains unclear which subcommittee(s) would exercise most jurisdiction over global health issues and since the committee seems to be approaching a number of issues at the full committee level, this table does not include the Senate HELP subcommittees.
