Jackson named to oversight committee


Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) on Tuesday announced the Senate members of the General Assembly’s top government oversight committee.

The Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations provides ongoing legislative oversight of state government functions and operations between legislative sessions. Among other responsibilities, it is charged with examining the management, cost and effectiveness of government programs and monitoring compliance with state law.

The committee, which is comprised of bipartisan members of the House and Senate, will meet periodically until the legislature returns in April 2016 for its short session.

“This committee makes state government more accountable to its citizens, and I thank our senators for their willingness to serve and help fulfill this important responsibility,” said Berger.

Below are the Senate members of the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations:

Chair: Phil Berger (Ex Officio) and members, Harry Brown (Ex Officio), Louis Pate (Ex Officio), Tom Apodaca, Chad Barefoot, Stan Bingham, Dan Blue, Andrew Brock, Warren Daniel, Don Davis, Jim Davis, Joel Ford, Rick Gunn, Kathy Harrington, Fletcher Hartsell, Ralph Hise, Brent Jackson, Floyd McKissick, Bill Rabon, Bob Rucho, Josh Stein, Jerry Tillman, Tommy Tucker and Trudy Wade.
