House Committees

The Health Care, Human Services and Rural Health Policy Committee is a former standing committee of the Oregon State Senate. In 2015, this committee was split and changed to the Health Care Committee and the Human Services and Early Childhood Committee.

Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Oregon State Senate are assigned by the President of the Senate. Committees are assigned at the start of each session and for each interim period.[1] A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum.[2] The President of the Senate serves as an ex officio member of each committee with the power to vote. The President does not increase the size of the committee or the number of members required to provide a quorum, but is counted for purposes of a quorum.
