Boss Wills UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Jan 12, 2009 at 1:27 PM

To the winner of the speaker's race goes the prize of awarding committee chairmanships.

You can see them now on the speaker's website. Reviews welcome. It's a rainbow coalition -- black, white, men, women, Dems, Repubs. Some certifiable progressive thinkers in some important slots. Some troglodytes, too. It is the Arkansas General Assembly, after all.

UPDATE: Roby Brock notes that House Speaker Wills has assigned his lottery bill to the Rules Committee, led by Robert Moore. Brummett blog more forcefully underscores that the Rules Committee is the speaker's rubber stamp.
