The State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee is a class B standing committee of the Arkansas House of Representatives.

Per the House Rules, committees of the Arkansas House of Representatives are assigned by the Congressional District Caucuses. Each caucus selects five members for each committee, with the except of the District Two Caucus, which selects three members for each committee from within Pulaski County and two from without.[1] Committees are following each election.[2] A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum. The Speaker of the House serves as an "ex officio" member of any committee, but does not count towards quorum.[3]
