The Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Development Committee (formerly the Committee on Fiscal Responsibility and Accountability) is a standing committee of the Alabama State Senate.

Per Rule 47 of the Senate Rules, committees of the Alabama State Senate are assigned by the Committee on Assignments, consisting of the president pro tempore, lieutenant governor, senate majority leader and three additional members appointed by the president pro tempore.[1] The rules do not specify how often committees are assigned.[2] A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum. The president of the Senate serves as an ex officio member of each committee, except specific Local Legislation Committees, with the power to vote. The president may appoint a senator who is not already on a committee to serve as his official substitute.[3]
