by Anna Oakes
Rep. Jonathan Jordan of Jefferson on Wednesday was appointed to serve as the co-chairman of the N.C. House of Representatives Judiciary B Subcommittee during his second term.
Jordan was re-elected to the District 93 seat in the House in November.
A statement from N.C. Speaker of the House Thom Tillis described the judiciary subcommittees as being among the "major" House committees.
"The leaders of the major House committees face important tasks with tremendous responsibilities," Tillis said in the news statement. "In every policy area, North Carolina must ensure that we continue to put our fiscal house in order, grow our economy, improve education outcomes and effectively serve our citizens. I look forward to working with these House members to make sure we are successful."
During his freshman term, Jordan served as deputy majority whip, vice chairman of the Elections Committee, chairman of the House Select Committee on Homeowners Associations and vice chairman of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Information Technology.
