The Paxton chairs
Mon January 3, 2011 8:41 pm

What might the lineup of chairs look like if Paxton were to win the speakership? The qualifications are (1) must be part of the Paxton team, either pledged to Paxton or withdrew a pledge to Straus; (2) must have some connection to the committee's jurisdiction, either through subject matter, previous service, or fitness for the position.

Here's my list:

APPROPRIATIONS - Chisum
CALENDARS - Laubenberg
DEFENSE & VETERANS AFFAIRS - V. Taylor
ELECTIONS - Berman
GENERAL INVESTIGATING - Hughes
HIGHER EDUCATION - Morrison
HOUSE ADMINISTRATION - Christian
LOCAL AND CONSENT CALENDARS - C. Howard
PENSIONS, INVESTMENTS & FINANCIAL SERVICES -Flynn
PUBLIC EDUCATION - Weber
REDISTRICTING - P. King
TECHNOLOGY - T. Parker
WAYS & MEANS - Craddick

(I added Charlie Howard to the list of Paxton chairs, since he is not on the Straus pledge list. He is chairman of Local & Consent, a committee he chaired under Craddick.)

Still looking for:

INSURANCE
PUBLIC HEALTH
NATURAL RESOURCES
TRANSPORTATION
