Rep. Alma Adams of Guilford County will remain chairwoman of the North Carolina Legislative Black Caucus.
Adams announced Wednesday she was recently re-elected unanimously to the post. The Democrat has served in the House since
1994 and is also a co-chairwoman of the powerful House appropriations Committee.
Adams helped lead the fight toward approving a higher minimum wage in 2006. She also appeared in a television ad last spring on behalf of Gov.-elect Beverly Perdue to respond to questions raised by Perdue's chief rival about her commitment to civil rights legislation.
The caucus was comprised of nearly 30 members during the 2007-08
legislative session. The group works to promote legislation that benefits black citizens and others.
