House Committees

The Appropriations Committee is a standing committee of the Michigan State Senate. Per Senate Rule 2.103, the committee is made up of 16 members.[1]

Per Rule 1.105 of the Senate Rules, committees in the Michigan State Senate are appointed by the Majority Leader unless otherwise called for by the Senate. Committees are appointed at the beginning of every two-year legislative session. All appointments to standing committees and subcommittees made by the Majority Leader must be approved by the Senate. The Majority Leader shall make appointments of minority members from a list submitted by the Minority Leader; while the Majority Leader can partially reject the list, the Minority Leader shall submit other nominations.[2] The first person named to a committee will serve as chair; the second will serve as majority vice chair, and all others shall rank in the order they were named. The first minority member named shall serve as minority vice chair. In the absence of the chair and the majority vice chair, the highest ranking member present will preside as acting chair. A committee member, but not a chairperson, who has been absent for a significant period of time may be replaced by the Majority Leader until he or she returns.[3]

Function

While the primary function of the standing committees is to consider legislation, there are a few specific exceptions. For example, the appropriations committees in the House and Senate have the added responsibility under the State Constitution of approving or disapproving gubernatorial executive orders that propose reductions of expenditures authorized by appropriation.[4][5]
