LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The House Caucus of the members-elect of the 89th General Assembly will convene at 8:30 am on Friday, November 9.
The Speaker of the House will begin the Caucus by declaring all House Chamber seats vacant. According to House Rules, seniority of incoming members must be determined by lot. The Speaker and Speaker-designate will conduct the drawing. Representatives-elect will select, in the order of their seniority, any seat not occupied.
After seniority is determined and seats are selected, members will then gather with their respective District Caucus in committee rooms to begin the process of committee selection for standing committees.
The Speaker of the House appoints a chairperson and vice-chairperson from the selected membership of each standing committee at a later date.
The proceedings on the House Floor will be broadcast on http://www.arkansashouse.org/.
