If vacancies occur or exist in the majority party membership of the subcommittees of the senate, the president pro tempore shall appoint a replacement member; if vacancies occur or exist in the minority party membership of the subcommittees of the senate, the minority leader shall appoint a replacement member. If vacancies occur or exist in the majority party membership of the subcommittees of the house, the speaker shall appoint a replacement member; if vacancies occur or exist in the minority party membership of the subcommittees of the house, the minority leader shall appoint a replacement member.
