Senate Committees

The Education Committee is a former standing committee of the North Carolina House of Representatives. In 2015, this committee was split into three separate committees. The Education - Community Colleges Committee, the Education - K-12 Committee and the Education - Universities Committee.

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]

The House Education Committee is a policy committee. This committee handles all proposed legislation dealing with policy from kindergarten through higher education. If a bill deals with both policy and appropriation it is heard by both committees.[4][5]
