In the Senate does one of the whips make committee assignments, if so which one? Or, does the policy committee do that?

In the House does one of the whips make committee assignment, if so which one? Or, does the steering committee do that?

They are made by the steering committee of each party in each chamber, with the leadership of the party, especially the majotrity party in each chamber having a a good deal of influence in the assignments. While seniority of a specific committee means a lot, it is not the end all be all of who gets what assignemtns.
