Rule 24. “1. The Committee on Committees shall consist of twenty-five members elected by the House, and the Speaker of the Assembly, the majority and minority leaders shall be ex-officio members of the committee on committees and shall have a vote in said committee on committees on all legislation.

2. The committee on committees shall appoint all the standing committees and appoint the chairmen of all standing committees.

3. The committee on committees shall recommend rules of procedure to the Assembly for their adoption.

4. The committee on committees shall meet at least once in every two weeks and the chairman of the respective standing committee of the House are to report to the committee on committees on all legislation and its progress.

5. During the last ten days of the session a notice may be given, requesting that any matter may be made a special order, or that the rules be suspended for the purpose of reading a bill out of its order, which shall be referred, without debate, to the committee on committees. The member making the motion or giving the notice shall submit in writing the reasons for making such special order or suspension, and attach thereto a copy of the bill.

6. The committees may report at any time, and such report shall stand as the determination of the House, unless otherwise ordered by a vote of a majority of the members elected. The committee shall not, however, report as a special order, a measure for the consideration of which a motion to discharge a standing committee has been recommitted to the committee for whence it came, unless so instructed by the house by a vote of a majority of the members elected. The committee may be instructed by the house at any time to report any matter as a special order or to report that the rules be suspended for the purpose of reading a bill out of its order by a vote of a majority of the members elected.

7.
