The Legislative Council, established by the General Assembly in
1939, consists of twenty members, ten from the Senate and ten from
the House of Delegates. The President of the Senate, the Chairman
of the Committee on Judicial Proceedings, the Chairman of the
Finance Committee, and the Minority Floor Leader are ex officio
members from the Senate. The President of the Senate appoints the
remaining six members, and the appointments are subject to approval
by majority vote of the Senate. The Speaker of the House of Dele-
gates, the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, the Chairman
of the Judiciary Committee, and the Minority Floor Leader are

maining six members, and the appointments are subject to approval
by majority vote of the House. The President of the Senate and the
Speaker of the House serve as Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the
Council respectively.

The Council meets in the interim between the regular sessions of
the General Assembly to study previously enacted laws and suggest
any necessary amendments thereto; to recommend a program of
legislation in the form of proposed bills; and to study the rules of
both Houses of the General Assembly and suggest revisions for
expediting the business of the Legislature. The Council receives
recommendations from the various State agencies, bar associations,
labor unions, and other organized groups and private individuals. It
holds hearings on legislative proposals and may subpoena witnesses
and records.
