Fees and Salaries of Public Officers Committee, Mississippi House of Representatives
Per Rule 60(4) of the House Rules, committees of the Mississippi House of Representatives are appointed by the Speaker of the House. After the adoption of House Rules, committees are appointed according to legislators' preferences as well as seniority, abilities and geographic location. Representatives are to submit a list of at least 10 committee preferences by 5 p.m. on the third calendar day of the legislative session following an election. A legislator who has served in the House less than four years in his or her lifetime is guaranteed two of his or her top seven preferences unless appointed to the Appropriations or Ways and Means Commitees; one who has served for four or more years in his or her lifetime is guaranteed three of his or her first seven choices unless appointed to the Appropriations or Ways and Means Committees. Representatives are barred from serving on both the Appropriations and Ways and Means Committees, and may serve on at least four standing committees. The first person appointed to a committee is to serve as the chair, with the second serving as vice chair. A representative appointed to serve as chair or vice chair of a committee is barred from serving in either position on another committee. The Speaker and Speaker Pro Tempore serve on the Rules and Management Committees ex officio.
