The House has now adjourned for the day; it'll come back into session at 9 a.m. on Friday. “We've made most of the decisions,” Speaker Scott Bedke told the House. “We want to sleep on some of them. We'll come back fresh in the morning and we will announce the committee assignments. The chairs have been assigned, and we will be making an announcement to the press on adjournment.”
He said, “We appreciate your forbearance today, and the patience that you've shown. These are always trying days, but I think we've come through this day as easily as any I can remember in the past.” The list of House committee chairs should be available shortly.
