Senate members are appointed to committees by the Lieutenant Governor. The Lieutenant Governor also provides each committee with its charge.
Links to each committee page are listed below, where you will find committee membership, schedules, video and/or audio archives of previous public hearings, and more.
The Texas Legislature Online's committee portal is also available, and provides a database of searchable information about committee schedules, minutes, membership, process, and more.
When Senate Committees are holding public hearings in the Capitol Complex, you may find live webcasts of the proceedings at the Senate Live Broadcasts page.
