Siddoway gets JFAC seat

The Senate has finished its reshuffling of committee assignments now that Sen. Russ Fulcher is in leadership (majority caucus chair), and Fulcher’s former seat on the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee has gone to Sen. Jeff Siddoway, R-Terreton. Siddoway’s former seat on the Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee went to Sen. Mike Jorgenson, R-Hayden Lake. Meanwhile, Fulcher joined Senate State Affairs; new Sen. Bert Brackett, R-Rogerson, who moved over from the House, is joining the Senate Resources and Health & Welfare committees along with his JFAC seat; Jorgenson is joining the Commerce & Human Resources Committee; and new Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Boise, replaces Siddoway as vice chairman of the Agriculture Committee. Also, new Sen. Dean Mortimer, R-Idaho Falls, another former House member, replaces Fulcher as vice chairman of the Senate Education Committee. There were no changes on Transportation or Judiciary & Rules.
