In appointing senators from the minority party, the President of the Senate can ask for recommendations from the Minority Leader. If at anytime a committee member is unable to serve, the President of the Senate can appoint another senator. The Majority Leader and Minority Leader are considered to be ex-officio members on all standing reference committees, but have no voting rights.
