The authorizing committee in the House for Department of Education programs, including those focusing on science and math education, is the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. In addition to the Department of Education, the National Science Foundation also funds programs in science and math education; its authorizing committee is the House Science Committee. Below is the roster for the House Committee on Education and the Workforce for the 106th Congress. See the Web sites of all representatives.

Congress deals primarily with two types of bills, authorization and appropriations. Authorizing legislation gives a federal department or agency permission to spend money and sets policy direction; appropriations provide the actual money.
