Per the House Rules, committees of the Louisiana House of Representatives are assigned by the Speaker of the House.[1] It is unclear when committees are assigned. A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum.[2] The Speaker and Speaker Pro Tempore serve as "ex officio" members of every committee.[3]
