Rep. Katie Dempsey was named Wednesday by Rep. Bill Hembree of District 67 as the subcommittee chair that oversees the Technical College System of Georgia issues that come before the House Higher Education.

Dempsey’s position as chair of the subcommittee will mean she will be hearing about issues that affect Coosa Valley Technical College, which will be merging with Northwest Georgia Technical College in July.

Dempsey aide Anna Sargent said she found out about the appointment Wednesday morning. Dempsey is also on the House Budget and Fiscal Affairs Oversight Committee, the Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee and the Economic Development and Tourism, Health and Human Services and Higher Education committees
