Healthcare and Education Working Groups of N.C. House COVID-19 Committee to Convene Remotely Thursday

Raleigh, N.C. – Working groups of the state House Select Committee on COVID-19 will continue their meetings this week with bipartisan legislative task forces on healthcare and education convening remotely on Thursday.

The public can listen to the remote committee meetings online through the General Assembly’s audio system in Room 1228 and access meeting documents on the committee website. 

The Healthcare Working Group will meet at 10 a.m., and the Education Working Group will meet at 1 p.m. on Thursday. 

State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland County) appointed bipartisan co-chairs of the COVID-19 committee and its working groups last week and addressed the first meeting of its economic support working group today.  

“These remote meetings are truly unprecedented, and I appreciate the hard work of staff and members to get them started as soon as possible,” Speaker Moore said Friday.  “It is encouraging to hear North Carolina’s elected representatives discussing the issues facing our state from COVID-19 in these remote meetings, and to know we are already at work helping folks who need it.”   

“Our bipartisan healthcare and education working groups also have important meetings Thursday to analyze developments at the federal level, assess the needs of our local communities, and find ways the General Assembly can assist with short-term critical needs and a successful long-term recovery in North Carolina.”
