Robinson was one of five additional committee chairs that Gilbert, R-Shenandoah, announced on Tuesday.

Del. Glenn Davis, R-Virginia Beach, will become the chairman of the Education Committee. He will succeed Del. Roslyn Tyler, D-Sussex, who was defeated in the Nov. 2 elections.

In the Nov. 2 House elections Republicans turned a 55-45 Democratic majority into a 52-48 GOP advantage.

A two-month General Assembly session begins Jan. 12.
