More shuffling of House committee chairs…

Rep. Bob Schaefer, R-Nampa, reportedly is out as chairman of the House Commerce & Human Resources Committee, in a shuffling of committee responsibilities that has that panel taking on some duties that now go to the Health & Welfare Committee, and former Health & Welfare Chair Sharon Block, R-Twin Falls, taking over the Commerce chairmanship. Meanwhile, Rep. Janice McGeachin, R-Idaho Falls, reportedly would become chair of the Health & Welfare Committee.
