Rep. Jeff Zenger committee assignments announced

RALEIGH —This week, Speaker Tim Moore released the North Carolina House of Representatives standing committee assignments for the 2021-22 legislative biennium. Rep. Jeff Zenger (R-Forsyth) was selected to serve on the following committees: Banking, Election Law and Campaign Finance Reform, Finance, Judiciary 4, State Personnel, Regulatory Reform.

“Looking forward to working on these committees to continue to make North Carolina a great place to live and do business.” said Rep. Zenger.

“Committees in the North Carolina House are well-prepared to get to work addressing the priorities of North Carolinians after a successful decade implementing budget and policy reforms for our state,” Speaker Moore said Monday. “Through these committees, the state House will maintain our record of results that benefit families, help businesses grow, and improve state government services for our citizens.”

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. Zenger 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.
