Senate Committees

The Juvenile Justice Committee is a standing committee of the Georgia House of Representatives.

The Juvenile Justice Committee was formerly known as that Children and Youth Committee.

Per the House Rules, committees of the Georgia House of Representatives are assigned by the Speaker of the House.[1] Committees are assigned after each election.[2] A quorum is not defined in the rules. The President is not designated as an "ex officio" member of every committee. The Speaker, Speaker pro Tempore, Majority Leader and Majority Whip are all "ex officio" members of every committee, except the Speaker who is not an "ex officio" member of the Rules committee.[3]

Formerly known as Children and Youth, the Juvenile Justice Committee was recreated during the 2013 legislative session to serve more as a judiciary committee over juvenile related issues.[4][5]
