House Committees

The Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee is a standing committee of the South Carolina State Senate.

Per Section 19 (d) of the Senate Rules, committees of the South Carolina State Senate are assigned through self-selection by Senate members. For committee selection, the Clerk of the Senate will make a list of all Senate members in the order of length of service and the members with the longest continuous service will select first. This process will continue until all members are assigned. Committees are assigned at the start of the new session following the election of Senate members.[1] The chairman of each standing committee will be the senior member of the majority party. If a vacancy were to occur in the chairmanship of a standing committee, then the next most senior member from the majority party would take over.[2]
