Speaker Smith announces committee shifts

House Speaker Shap Smith announced new committee assignments for six veteran legislators and two newly sworn-in lawmakers.

Here's the rundown:
Greshin of Warren and Johnson of Canaan to Ways and Means;
Koch of Barre to Judiciary;
Morley of Barton and Spengler of Colchester to Health Care;
Winters of Williamstown to Appropriations;
Howard of Cambridge, newly appointed, to Transportation;
Shaw of Pittsford, newly appointed, corrections and Institutions

Two more vacancies exist on committees, one on Fish and Wildlife and another on House General, Housing and Military Affairs, for lawmakers yet to be appointed by the governor.

It's deck chairs on a sinking ship. The only thing that matters is cutting state spending and making the state safe for the development of business. Period. Nothing else matters now. And I don't think Smith can pull it off.
