Who appoints special committees?

And let us be sure we are clear: "appoint" means to name people to serve on an already establshed committee, or at the least, a committee established in the motion that also appoints people to the committee.

Frequently (unfortunaltely, in my view) "appoint" and "establish" get rolled in to one word (usually "appoint").

A motion to commit has two parts: establishing the committee, which includes giving it its marching orders, &c., and either naming people to serve on the committee ("appoint") or handing the authority to appoint on to someone else (not infrequently, the president), other means of selection - see p. 492 ff.
