Per each chamber's rules, committees of the Connecticut General Assembly are assigned by the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House. Committees are assigned at the start of each term. A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum. Neither the President nor the Speaker is recognized as an "ex officio" member of any committee.
