Per Rule 6 of the House Rules, committees of the Tennessee House of Representatives are appointed by the Speaker of the House.[1] In each standing committee and for the Committee on Calendar and Rules, the Speaker of the House appoints one chair, one vice-chair, and one secretary. The Speaker considers the abilities, preferences, seniority of members, and the political party representation in the House when appointing committees and committee officers. Members are appointed to server on no more than two standing committees, exclusive of the Committee on Calendar and Rules.[1][2] The Speaker of the House and the Speaker Pro Tempore are voting members of each standing committee.[1][3]
