Committee Musical Chairs

The House Committee assignments are out, and the Senate assignments are expected on Tuesday (waiting until the last minute, I see).

My thoughts: I love love love the combo of Sean Lynn and Krista Griffith as chairs and vice chairs of the Judiciary Committee. Love Minor-Brown as chair of the Corrections committee. I am taking a wait and see approach to Quinn Johnson being the chair of the JFC, well co-chair along with his Senate counterpart. He is an improvement over his predecessor.

I like the new blood on the Education committee (Minor-Brown, Nnamdi, and Kendra Johnson), but Jaques is still the Chair and thus everything is horrible.

Committee sizes appears to be an issue. In the Senate, they have limited the sizes of each respective committee to 5. There is not a corresponding rule in the House, and thus, some desirable committees to have on your resume attract a large number of members of each party. The largest committees are Agriculture, Education, and Veteran’s Affairs, with 27 of all 41 members on the committee.

Kevin Ohlandt is reporting a rumor that a freshman Democratic Senator will get a coveted sport on the Joint Finance Committee. He doesn’t name the Senator, but my guess is Tizzy Lockman. We will see on Tuesday.
