Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Kentucky State Senate are assigned by the Committee on Committees.[1] Committees are assigned at the start of each term.[2] A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum.[3] The President is not recognized as an "ex officio" member of any committee.

All bills and resolutions having been reported out of the committee to which referred and having received their second reading shall be referred to the Rules Committee. The Rules Committee may refer any bill or resolution before it back to the committee which has reported out the bill or resolution, to another committee of jurisdiction, or to the Committee on Appropriations and Revenue in those instances in which the fiscal implications of the measure may require additional consideration.[4][5]
