Brown re-elected to top Senate post…

The state Senate Democratic caucus on Sunday re-elected Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, as Senate Majority Leader.

Also re-elected: majority caucus chairwoman Harriet Spanel, D-Bellingham, and majority floor leader Tracey Eide, D-Federal Way.

As for committee chairs, that's yet to be determined. Those plum assignments are set by the Committee on Committees (really), which will decide chairs, vice-chairs, and who sits on which committees.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
