I. MEETINGS OF THE COMMITTEE

    1. Meetings of the Committee may be called by the Chairman 
as he may deem necessary on three days' notice of the date, 
time, place and subject matter of the meeting, or in the 
alternative with the consent of the Ranking Minority Member, or 
pursuant to the provision of the Standing Rules of the Senate, 
as amended.
    2. Unless a different date and time are set by the Chairman 
pursuant to (1) of this section, Committee meetings shall be 
held beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Thursdays the Senate is in 
session, which shall be the regular meeting day for the 
transaction of business.
    3. At the request of any Member, or by action of the 
Chairman, a bill, matter, or nomination on the agenda of the 
Committee may be held over until the next meeting of the 
Committee or for one week, whichever occurs later.

II. HEARINGS OF THE COMMITTEE

    1. The Committee shall provide a public announcement of the 
date, time, place and subject matter of any hearing to be 
conducted by the Committee or any Subcommittee at least seven 
calendar days prior to the commencement of that hearing, unless 
the Chairman with the consent of the Ranking Minority Member 
determines that good cause exists to begin such hearing at an 
earlier date. Witnesses shall provide a written statement of 
their testimony and curriculum vitae to the Committee at least 
24 hours preceding the hearing in as many copies as the 
Chairman of the Committee or Subcommittee prescribes.
    2. In the event 14 calendar days' notice of a hearing has 
been made, witnesses appearing before the Committee, including 
any witness representing a Government agency, must file with 
the Committee at least 48 hours preceding appearance written 
statements of their testimony and curriculum vitae in as many 
copies as the Chairman of the Committee or Subcommittee

taken and a majority of those present support the action taken.

the Committee and each Subcommittee thereof, now or hereafter 
appointed, shall consist of one Senator.

IV. BRINGING A MATTER TO A VOTE

bring a matter before the Committee to a vote. If there is 
objection to bringing the matter to a vote without further 
debate, a roll call vote of the Committee shall be taken, and 
debate shall be terminated if the motion to bring the matter to 
a vote without further debate passes with ten votes in the 
affirmative, one of which must be cast by the minority.

V. AMENDMENTS

    1. Provided at least seven calendar days' notice of the 
agenda is given, and the text of the proposed bill or 
resolution has been made available at least seven calendar days 
in advance, it shall not be in order for the Committee to 
consider any amendment in the first degree proposed to any 
measure under consideration by the Committee unless such 
amendment has been delivered to the office of the Committee and 
circulated via e-mail to each of the offices by at least 5:00 
p.m. the day prior to the scheduled start of the meeting.
    2. It shall be in order, without prior notice, for a Member

and included on the Committee's legislative agenda.
    4. This section of the rule may be waived by agreement of 
the Chairman and the Ranking Minority Member.

resolution, amendment, or any other question, a quorum being 
present, Members who are unable to attend the meeting may 
submit their votes by proxy, in writing or by telephone, or 
through personal instructions. A proxy must be specific with 
respect to the matters it addresses.

VII. SUBCOMMITTEES

    1. Any Member of the Committee may sit with any 
Subcommittee during its hearings or any other meeting, but 
shall not have the authority to vote on any matter before the 
Subcommittee unless a Member of such Subcommittee.
    2. Subcommittees shall be considered de novo whenever there 
is a change in the Subcommittee chairmanship and seniority on 
the particular Subcommittee shall not necessarily apply.
    3. Except for matters retained at the full Committee, 
matters shall be referred to the appropriate Subcommittee or 
Subcommittees by the Chairman, except as agreed by a majority 
vote of the Committee or by the agreement of the Chairman and 
the Ranking Minority Member.
    4. Provided all Members of the Subcommittee consent, a bill 
or other matter may be polled out of the Subcommittee. In order 
to be polled out of a Subcommittee, a majority of the Members 
of the Subcommittee who vote must vote in favor of reporting 
the bill or matter to the Committee.

of the Committee shall be kept by the Committee Clerk. Official 
attendance at all Subcommittee business meetings shall be kept
