To Make Room For Sen. Bert Stedman
December 08, 2003
"Last session, the Senate organization worked cooperatively and successfully. I have every reason to believe this reorganization will work out just as well," said Sen. Gene Therriault.
Under the proposal, Sen. Stedman
will Chair the Community & Regional Affairs Committee, replacing
Sen. Tom Wagoner (R-Kenai), who will remain on that committee.
Sen. Wagoner will become co-chair of the Transportation Committee
along with Sen. John Cowdery (R-Anchorage). As previously announced,
Sen. Fred Dyson (R-Eagle River) will join the Finance Committee.
It is expected Sen. Stedman will be named to the State Affairs
Committee as well as the Salmon Industry Task Force. Other adjustments
may be made to joint committees and task forces when session
convenes in January.
