Why is opening day in the house of representatives so chaotic?

Because all 435 of the House's seats are up for election every two years, the house technically has no sworn members, no rules, and no organization until its opening day ceremonies are held. The Senate is a continuous body with 1/3 of its 100 seats up for election every two years, therefore the Senate's opening day is more structured and organized than the House of Reps.


What is the purpose of a conference committee of both houses?

They are formed to settle differences between House and Senate versions of the same bill.If changes were made by the Senate, the differences between its version of the bill and the House version of the bill have to be resolved. The House may vote to accept the bill as amended by the Senate if the changes were minor. If the two versions differ greatly however, the bill will most likely go to a conference committee made up of members from both the House and the Senate. This committee works out a version of the bill that will be acceptable to both houses of Congress. The revised version goes back to both the House and the Senate for approval.So basically, the purpose of a conference committee is so that a bill can be revised (or edited) to both the House and the Senates liking.
