Steinburg to chair Agriculture Committee
EDENTON — State Representative Bob Steinburg (R-Edenton) today announced his committee assignments for his second term in office. Steinburg earned the Chairman’s gavel for the Agriculture Committee after serving as Vice-Chairman during his inaugural term. Steinburg also was named to the following committees: Commerce and Job Development, Environment, Finance, Judiciary 1, Transportation, and Wildlife Resources.
“These committee assignments mean I will be working closely on the issues most important to our area,” said Steinburg.“Agriculture is the most important industry in our state, and I am committed to serve as a friend of the farmer. From fighting to restore the Historic Preservation Tax Credit on the Finance Committee to implementing policies that will attract new jobs on the Commerce and Job Development Committee, few committees are as important to the job growth our area needs as these.
“I am especially glad to join the Transportation Committee this year to ensure our roads, ferries, and bridges are funded and to work even more closely with Governor McCrory and the Department of Transportation,” continued Steinburg. “Our area’s natural resources and unique beauty is why many chose to live here. They are vital to our economy. Serving on the Environment Committee and the Wildlife Resources Committee will strengthen my influence for our way of life, and I remain a steadfast advocate for the rule of law and traditional values while serving again on the Judiciary Committee.”
Rep. Bob Steinburg concluded, “As you can tell, I am excited about the opportunity to make a difference for our area. That’s my mission in the State House, and my door is always open to help anyone.”
A retired businessman and lifelong conservative Republican, Rep. Bob Steinburg currently serves Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Pasquotank, Perquimans, and Tyrrell Counties in his second term in the State House.
