Sexton named to House committees

CROSSVILLE — State Rep. Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville), has been named to the newly created House Business and Utilities Committee, and reappointed to the Health Committee and the Committee on Calendar and Rules for the 108th General Assembly. He will, also, serve on the House sub-committee on Health.

The speaker redesigned the committee structure for the 108th General Assembly which created new committees and merged or split other committees. 

The new Business and Utilities Committee was created when the Commerce Committee was divided into two separate committees. In 2012, Tennessee is ranked as the fourth best business climate in America and this specialized committee will continue to play an important part in making sure Tennessee continues to be a business-friendly state, which is of the utmost importance in these trying economic times,” stated Sexton.”

Last session, Sexton served on the full committee on Health. He will continue in this role for this General Assembly and will serve on the sub-committee as well.

Healthcare has also been a major issue on Tennesseans’ minds for over decades, and I am excited about expanding my role on the Health Committee by serving on the sub-committee,” stated Sexton.

In addition, Sexton has been re-appointed by House Speaker Beth Harwell to continue his service on the powerful Committee on Calendar and Rules.

The Committee on Calendar and Rules is the last stop for all bills traveling through the committee system. It is also responsible for scheduling floor votes on all legislation. This committee deals with a wide range of issues and legislation on nearly every topic.

I am extremely honored in the confidence Speaker Harwell has expressed to me by allowing me to continue my service on these important committees for the people of the 25th District and the citizens of Tennessee,” said Sexton.

Sexton lives in Crossville and represents House District 25, which includes Cumberland, Putnam and Van Buren Counties.
