North Carolina House Majority Leader Skip Stam's office just sent out a list of the chairs and core members of the caucus' "policy committees."
These are the eight closed-door caucus committees that Speaker Tillis set up to "educate" Republican members on legislative issues. Members are welcome to attend any of these meetings, but the public, the press and advocates are only allowed in by invitation.
On an interesting note, Lee Republican Mike Stone's "Issue Education Group," the one that drew fire last week for meeting privately with gambling lobbyists, is called the "Jobs/Economic (and Regulatory Reform)" group.
