Senate completes committee assignments

A committee led by Sen. Bob Geddes, R-Soda Springs, reports back to the full Senate that the House and the governor have been informed that the Senate is organized and ready for business. That marked the close of the Senate's organizational session, in which committee assignments, chairmanships, seating and various formalities were finalized in preparation for the January legislative session.
