The Commerce and Workforce Development Committee (formerly known as the Commerce, Energy and Military Committee and the Commerce and Energy Committee) is a standing committee of the Arizona State Senate.

Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Arizona State Senate are assigned by the President of the Senate.[1] Committees are assigned at the start of each term.[2] A majority of members of a committee constitutes quorum.[3] The President is appointed as an "ex officio" member of every committee but cannot vote except on the committees that he or she chairs. The President may also vote if he or she is an appointed member of the Rules Committee.[1]
