The Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee is a standing committee of the New Jersey Senate.

Per Section 3.6 of the Senate Rules, committees of the New Jersey State Senate are appointed by the President of the Senate.[1] The rules do not specify when or how often committees are assigned. 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.[1] The Majority Leader and Minority Leader are considered to be ex-officio members on all standing reference committees, but have no voting rights.[2]
