U.S. House Committee on International Relations
The U.S. House Committee on International Relations (also known as the House International Relations Committee, the House Foreign Relations Committee or the House Foreign Affairs Committee), is a standing committee of the United States House of Representatives which is in charge of bills and investigations related to the foreign affairs of the United States. It is currently chaired by representative Henry Hyde of Illinois. It is less powerful than its Senate counterpart, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, because the House committee is unable to confirm or reject treaties and ambassadors appointed by the President.
