NC Senate Releases 2009-10 Committee Assignments

New faces have been added to lead the most powerful committees in the North Carolina Senate.

Senate leader Marc Basnight released committee assignments in the chamber for the next two years on Wednesday.

Democratic Sen. A.B. Swindell of Nash County has been named a co-chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. He joins Democratic Sens. Linda Garrou, Charlie Albertson and Charlie Dannelly as leaders of the chief budget-writing panel.

Another Democrat, Sen. Clark Jenkins of Edgecombe County, is now a Finance Committee co-chairman. He replaces the retiring Sen. John
Kerr.

Basnight retained a handful of Republican senators for leadership positions. Sen. Fletcher Hartsell of Cabarrus County is
the only Republican to be the sole chairman of a panel -- a
judiciary committee.
