Today's statement was void of any comment by Johansen regarding the Alaska State House Majority Caucus members' decision Sunday tonight not to re-admit him back into the caucus. Johansen, who had been the majority leader before his walkout in mid-November, was assigned the seat on the state affairs committee by the Alaska State House Majority leadership Tuesday.
Johansen said additionally he has been assigned to three House Finance Subcommittees: Environmental Conservation, Labor, and Workforce and Revenue. He said majority members are usually assigned three budget subcommittees and he will have a hand in shaping the state operating budget as well as a large number of bills over the next two years. These subcommittees review the Governor’s Operating Budget and work directly with the Departments as they present their fiscal overview, budget and priorities. The subcommittees then present their recommendations to the full House Finance Committee said Johansen.
