The TACIR Committee is a standing committee of the Tennessee General Assembly.

Per Section 80 of the Senate Rules, rules pertaining to joint committees are governed by Mason's Manual of Legislative Procedure.[1] The Committee Rules of the House do not address joint committees, but House Rule 79 states that any questions about the rules of the House are to be governed by the most recent edition of Mason's Manual of Legislative Procedure.[2][1] Per Section 655 of Mason's, a quorum of a joint committee is a majority of its total members. The majority of the quorum, when present, is able to transact business.[2] The Senate Rules allow for members to vote by houses if the House of Representatives and the State Senate committees or subcommittees meet jointly and there is a quorum present.[1][2]
