Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Illinois State Senate are assigned by the President of the Senate and the Minority Leader. The President appoints the Chair, Vice-chair and remaining majority members, while the Minority Leader appoints the minority members. Committees are assigned at the start of each term.[1] A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum.[2] The President is not recognized as an "ex officio" member of any committee.
