ASHEBORO N.C. – Newly re-elected Senator David Craven (R-Randolph) has been appointed as Chairman to the Commerce and Insurance and Appropriations on Agriculture, Natural and Economic Resources committees for the 2023-24 legislative biennium.

Sen. Craven will also serve on the following committees during the biennium:

  • Education/Higher Education
  • Finance
  • Transportation
  • Agriculture, Energy, and Environment
  • Joint Commission on Governmental Operations

Committee meetings are where bills are presented, debated, and amended before they go to the full Senate to be voted.

“I appreciate the opportunity to serve on these vital committees. I am excited to continue working on policies that address many important issues affecting the constituents of our district,” said Sen. Craven in a press release.

The appointed committees play an influential role in hearing legislation related to business regulations and policies and state funding. Committee chairs lead the meetings and help facilitate the amendment process before bills go to the floor for a vote.
