Christian gets committee assignments

Newly appointed Rep. Leonard Christian received his committee assignments Monday on his first day in the Legislature.

Appropriations. Capital Budget. Government Operations & Elections. Labor & Workforce Development.

He also attended his first Appropriations Committee hearing, where Chairman Ross Hunter assigned him to the front row with another newcomer “to be closer to the public.” 

If you clipped out Sunday's guide to Eastern Washington legislators, be sure to write those assignments in. They weren't available last Friday when the list was being prepared.

The Spokane-area is fairly well represented on the money-spending committee, with Rep. Timm Ormsby serving as vice chairman and Reps. Kevin Parker, Susan Fagan and Joe Schmick already assigned to it.
