Encourage pilot rule changes in subcommittees.

To build support for process and procedural overhauls at the full committee level, some subcommittees should be encouraged to experiment and adopt rule changes as test cases. The Committee recognized that given the nuances of each House committee, some of the recommended changes in this chapter will require an extensive overhaul. Thus, the Committee recommends that rather than no reform, the subcommittee rules changes serve as a pilot program for the committee at large. Subcommittee Members could then report to their full committees, as well as their respective party caucuses, on successful experiments they’d recommend be adopted on a broader level.
