The Senate Majority Coalition Caucus today elected senior leaders for the caucus and the Washington state Senate.
The MCC filled its top leadership spots with senior senators. Leadership positions carry a 2-year term and new leaders begin their duties immediately.
“We’re anxious to start the 2017 legislative session. We have some big issues to tackle, and our leadership is committed to guiding the Senate and our caucus as we protect Washington’s future,” said Senate Majority Leader Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville.
“Sen. Fain has been spectacular as Floor Leader and I’m excited to have Sen. Becker and Sen. Bailey join leadership as well. They are both dynamic Senators who are enormously dedicated,” continued Schoesler.
Deputy leadership positions and committee chair positions will be decided in December.
- Majority Leader: Sen. Mark Schoesler, Ritzville, second term
