RALEIGH – State Rep. Destin Hall (R-Caldwell) was appointed co-chair of the N.C. House Committee on Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House on Monday by Speaker Tim Moore (R-Kings Mountain).
Rep. Hall joins Chairman David Lewis (R-Harnett) as the presiding chairs of the powerful committee. Legislation must pass through the committee before making it to the House floor.
Rep. Hall currently co-chairs the House Elections and Ethics Law Committee, the House Redistricting Committee, and the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Criminal Matters.
“Chairman Hall quickly distinguished himself as a young House lawmaker who can address a broad range of complex issues and forge bipartisan policy solutions to matters before the legislature, and we are fortunate to add his legal acumen to this important leadership position,” Speaker Moore said.
Rep. Lewis said, “Having previously chaired committees with Rep. Hall, I know he possesses tremendous leadership capabilities that will benefit members of the House of Representatives and the North Carolinians they serve.”
Rep. Hall also added, “I appreciate the Speaker providing this opportunity to serve North Carolinians in a new role and Chairman Lewis’ confidence in my abilities, as the legislature continues to support families at a critical time in our state’s history.”
First elected to the General Assembly in 2016, Hall is an attorney in Lenoir.
