RALEIGH — NC House Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, announced Friday the House co-chairs and members of the Joint Legislative Study Committee on the Affordable Care Act.
Reps. Jim Fulghum, R-Wake, and Jeff Collins, R-Nash, will co-chair the committee. Wake County Rep. Marilyn Avila will serve as a member of the committee.
Other House committee members include Reps. Nathan Baskerville, Vance; Brian Brown, Pitt; Beverly Earle, Charles Jeter and Jacqueline Schaffer, Mecklenburg; Frank Iler, Brunswick; Verla Insko, Orange; Susan Martin, Wilson; Tim Moffitt and Nathan Ramsey, Buncombe; Tom Murry, Wake; Joe Sam Queen, Haywood; Mike Stone, Lee; Paul Tine, Dare and Ken Waddell, Columbus.
“Citizens across North Carolina have been affected by Obamacare,” said Tillis. “Since its rollout in early October, premiums have increased dramatically and policies have been cancelled.
“It’s hitting North Carolinians hard and I’m confident that this committee will cast a broad net to learn the full impacts on our state and our citizens.”
The first meeting date and the details of the agenda will be set by the co-chairs in the coming weeks.
