Question 1: Do the incoming freshmen get to vote on committee chairmanships in the new Congress? (Seems like the current GOP leadership is dictating these assignments and no one else in the GOP caucus is getting any input.)
Question 2: I've heard somewhere (Rush Limbaugh, perhaps) that some worthwhile possibilities for committee chairmanships in the new Congress were eliminated from consideration because of "term limits." This is the first I've heard of "term limits" in this context. Can someone please explain how "term limits" may apply here?
Whoops! Thanks justiceseeker93! Too many tabs open.

The GOP term limits committee chairs and ranking members at 3 terms. They can be granted a waiver to continue though.
I think the steering committee chooses the committee chairs not the conference at large.
