The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Other House committees

Chris at Strange Bedfellows has a list of the committee chairs for the upcoming House session. In addition to yesterday's news of Judy Clibborn winning the much-coveted Transportation spot, here are some other notable tidbits (click the link for the full list):

Appropriations: Helen Sommers
Capital Budget: Bill Fromhold
Education: Dave Quall
Finance: Ross Hunter
Judiciary: Pat Lantz
Rules: Frank Chopp

In other news, NPI has the scoop that Antioch Bible Church's douchey pastor Ken Hutcherson is launching a long-shot initiative to repeal last spring's gay anti-discrimination law. If he's still not over that common sense legislation, he's going to go off his rocker when Ed Murray introduces a marriage bill come January. Not that it will pass (it probably won't), but considering all these new Democrats in office and a handful of moderate Republicans still in the House, I see no reason why the legislature should not be able to succeed in passing a legal union package with relative ease.
