Committee categories

The Committee on Legal Services is considered a standing committee although it is not included in the following committee schedule. At the beginning of each legislative session the Senate Services and Joint Budget Committee will be appointed by resolution and will remain intact until the end of that legislative session. The Senate also has the power to elect a calendar committee at any time.

All meeting times are set according to the Schedule of Committee Meetings passed out on the first meeting of the General Assembly.[1] All committees on this schedule are placed into categories of three with the rule that no representative can be one more than one committee within a category.[2] Special meetings may be held, or meetings may be cancelled, as long as they are announced by the chairman while the Senate is in session with sufficient time.[3]

The following table describes the categories standing committees have been divided into for meeting purposes.
