NC General Assembly confirms appointments for workers’ comp panel

The North Carolina General Assembly has confirmed the appointments that North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory made to the North Carolina Industrial Commission, the agency which handles workers’ compensation issues.

The Senate gave unanimous approval on Thursday, June 16 to Bill Daughtridge, a former member of North Carolina’s House of Representatives and McCrory’s secretary of administration, and Linda Cheatham, who was given another term to serve. The House has already approved their appointments. On Thursday, the House also confirmed the appointment of former Rep. Fred Steen to North Carolina’s unemployment benefits appeals panel, but his appointment is still lacking Senate approval. Steen is currently serving as McCrory’s chief legislative lobbyist.
