Hart Lands Transportation Vice Chair

For those of you keeping score at home, controversial Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, was appointed vice chairman of the House Transportation Committee and remains a member of the House Judiciary Committee. Vito Barbieri, the newby who replaced Jim Clark in House District 3, was appointed to the House Revenue & Taxation Committee, a panel from which Hart asked to be removed after a House Ethics Committee hearing on his income tax problems. Hart faces another hearing before the Ethics Committee as a result of a newspaper report that he illegally took timber from state endowment land to build his house. You can read the full account of committee assignments for the House by Betsy Russell here and for the Senate by Dustin Hurst here.

Question: Did Rep. Phil Hart get the right assignments?
