Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Kansas State Senate are assigned by the Organization, Calendar and Rules Committee. The committee is composed of the President of the Senate, the Majority Leader, Vice President of the Senate and six other members of the senate selected by the majority party.[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.
