Senate Committees

The Pensions Committee is a standing committee of the Texas House of Representatives.

Per the Senate Rules, committees of the Texas House of Representatives are assigned half by seniority and half by the Speaker of the House. Representatives select three committees they wish to serve on, and half of a committee's seats are filled in this manner based on seniority. In the case of equal seniority, the Speaker decides the seat. Once half of each committee is selected through this method, the Speaker appoints the rest of the committees.[1] Committees are assigned at the start of each legislative session.[2] A majority of appointed members make up a committee's quorum.[3] The Speaker is not recognized as an "ex officio" member of any committee.
