House Committee Assignment List

News release from House Speaker Beth Harwell’s office:
(NASHVILLE, January 10, 2013) – House Speaker Beth Harwell (R-Nashville) today announced committee and subcommittee appointments for the 108th General Assembly. The announcement comes after a new proposal by the Speaker to shake up the standing committees in an effort to make the process more efficient and save taxpayer money.
“When I was elected Speaker, I made clear that a limited and efficient government was my priority. Reaching those goals will always be a work in progress, and to that end I proposed changes to the committee system to balance the workload of each committee. I am confident this system will serve us well in the 108th General Assembly,” said Speaker Harwell.
“When appointing committees, I consider each member’s area of expertise, experience, previous service, and their interests,” said Speaker Harwell. “I’m confident I struck that balance and I’m looking forward to working with each of the members over the next two years as they serve in these roles.”
The House formally adopted Speaker Harwell’s recommended changes to the House rules on Thursday.
“I look forward to working with each of the new committee chairs and officers on the issues that matter most to Tennesseans,” she concluded.
