The Commerce, Energy and Military Committee (known as the Commerce and Energy Committee in the 2011-2012 session) is a standing committee of the Arizona State Senate.

Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Arizona State Senate are assigned by the President of the Senate.[1] Committees are assigned at the start of each term.[2] A majority of members of a committee constitutes quorum.[3] The President is appointed as an "ex officio" member of every committee but cannot vote except on the committees that he or she chairs. The President may also vote if he or she is an appointed member of the Rules Committee.[1]
