From 2013-2019, he served as the chairman of the House Rules Committee, which is responsible for establishing the terms and conditions of debate on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. This included determining the amendments, if any, that were determined to be in order for final vote on legislation. In 2008 and again in 2010, Sessions was elected by the House Republican Conference as chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
