House Majority Leader Law and Legal Definition
The House Majority Leader is the second most powerful member of the majority party in the House of Representatives. This officer is charged with scheduling legislation for floor consideration; planning the daily, weekly, and annual legislative agendas; consulting with Members to gauge party sentiment; and, in general, working to advance the goals of the majority party.
Unlike the speaker, he or she has no responsibility for the House as a whole, and focuses purely on advancing the interests of his or her party. For example, by organizing members to support the party's political priorities.
