(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — State Representative Michael Curcio (R-Dickson) has been elected by his colleagues in the House Republican Caucus to serve as a member of the Fiscal Review Committee.
The function of this committee is to conduct a continuing review of items such as revenue collections, budget requests, the recommended executive budget, appropriations, work programs, allotments, reserves, impoundments, the state debt, as well as the condition of various state funds.
Additionally, Fiscal Review is responsible for preparing fiscal notes for all general bills and resolutions introduced in the General Assembly that have a financial impact on state or local government. Members also review all audits prepared by the Comptroller of the Treasury and conduct public hearings on significant repeat audit findings.
“I am grateful for the support and trust my colleagues have placed in me to serve as a member of this important committee,” said Representative Curcio. “Tennessee is a national model for fiscal responsibility; I know my colleagues and I will work tirelessly to ensure our state remains fiscally sound in the years ahead.”
The 111th General Assembly convenes on January 8, 2019. All members will be sworn into office at noon.
