Democrats reach agreement with GOP on House committee ratios

Source: The Hill

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) announced Sunday that Democrats have reached an agreement with House Republicans on the remaining standing committee ratios for the upcoming term.

“These ratios are consistent with an inversion of those from the prior Congress where Democrats held a similarly sized majority, notwithstanding a few changes in overall committee size,” Jeffries said in a letter to colleagues that was obtained by The Hill.

Republicans currently hold a 222-212 advantage over Democrats in the House, after Democrats held a 235-199 edge in the last Congress.

House Republican leadership announced committee appointments last week, including reassigning Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) to committees after they were both stripped of their assignments in 2021.

Huh? Wasn't the last Congress also around 222-212?

He no doubt confused the 117th Congress with the 116th - the recent high-water mark for Democrats, after mid-terms which famously gave Cheeto "no love."
