Raleigh, NC – On Monday, January 25, 2021, Speaker Tim Moore of the North Carolina House of Representatives announced committee assignments for the legislative 2021-2022 biennium. Representative Karl E. Gillespie was appointed to serve on the following committees:
- Appropriations, Education
- Federal Relations and American Indian Affairs, Vice Chair
- Wildlife Resources, Vice Chair
“I would like to thank Speaker Tim Moore for appointing me to the aforementioned committees,” stated Rep. Gillespie. “Providing relief for North Carolina families, pursuing pro-job policies to encourage economic growth, and implementing broadband expansion are among my top priorities as the legislative session gets underway. In a time of unprecedented challenges, I am committed to working with my legislative colleagues to find bipartisan solutions for the betterment of North Carolina.”
On Monday, Speaker Moore’s office announced committee membership for each standing committee in the North Carolina House of Representatives. Under House Rules, the Speaker selects legislators to serve on each committee with consideration to their background and subject matter experience. The appointments reflect a new structure for some standing committees in the state House of Representatives, including a return to multiple judiciary committees. Standing Committees will meet at the discretion of the committee chairs to discuss legislation that is germane to their specific policy areas. As a committee member, Rep. Gillespie will be able to debate bills heard before the committee, propose changes to bill text, and vote on whether legislation should advance out of the committee.
