RALEIGH – Speaker of the N.C. House Rep.Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) announced standing committee chairs on Tuesday for the 2017 legislative session of the N.C. House preceding the General Assembly’s return on January 25.
“I want to thank my colleagues for their assistance in the committee assignment process and wish each chair a successful session presiding over deliberations and making decisions to improve the lives of North Carolinians,” said Speaker Moore in a press release. “The House is fortunate to return experienced chairs to many committees and add new leaders with fresh vision to other key roles.”
“I have the highest confidence that each chair will work successfully with their committee members to fix complex policy problems, pass historic reforms and find solutions for the most important issues in our state,” added Moore.
With committees in place the legislature can get up to speed quickly with budget legislation and alternative Republican priorities such as continued regulatory reform. Read the rest of this entry and see the Speaker’s Appointments
