Senate Committees

The Finance Committee is a standing committee of the North Carolina House of Representatives.

Per Section 26 of the House Rules, committees of the North Carolina House of Representatives are assigned by the Speaker of the House.[1] Before assigning members of committees and subcommittees, The Speaker shall consult with the Minority to consider members' preferences.[2] The rules do not specify when or how often committees are assigned. The Speaker shall have the right to appoint the chair and vice-chair of each standing committee.[1] Vacancies in a committee or subcommittee may not be filled by the Speaker after April 15 except to fill vacancies caused by resignation, death, removal or the inability to serve.[3]

All standing committees, other than the Standing Committee on Finance, when favorably reporting any bill which in any way or manner raises revenue, reduces revenue, levies a tax, authorizes the levying of a tax, an assessment, or a fee, or authorizes the issue of bonds or notes, whether public or local, shall indicate same in the report, and said bill shall be referred to the Standing Committee on Finance for a further report before being acted upon by the House. This subsection shall not apply to bills only imposing fines, forfeitures, or penalties.[4][5]

Chair resignation

In May 2013, Robert Brawley resigned from his position of chairman of the Finance Committee.[6]

In his resignation letter, Brawley blamed state house speaker Thom Tillis, pointing to disputes the two officials have had during the 2013 session.[7][8]
