Per Rule 25 of the Senate Rules, committees in the Missouri State Senate are appointed by the President Pro Tem.[1] Committees are appointed after the adoption of the Senate Rules at the beginning of the two-year General Assembly. Committee membership is to be as equal to the partisan balance of the chamber as possible.[2] The chair of a committee may appoint subcommittees with the committee's approval.[1] The President Pro Tem, the Majority Floor Leader and the Minority Floor Leader are considered members of all standing and statutory committees ex officio, but do not having voting power in any unless appointed to it proper.[2] Although not explicitly stated in the Senate Rules, the President Pro Tem has previously demonstrated a responsibility for filling vacancies in committees.[3]
