A committee functions to study and plan solutions to issues facing Floridians. The Senate and House rules provide for standing committees, subcommittees, and special or select committees. The Senate President names the chairs and members of all Senate committees, while the Speaker of the House names the chairs and members of all House committees.  The presiding officers appoint members to joint committees which are composed of members from each house.  Select committees are appointed to make recommendations on special or unique problems by the respective presiding officer in each house.
