Florida House rounds out its education committees
With its committee chairmen appointed earlier in the month, the Florida House leadership completed its committee assignments late last week. The Tampa Bay area might have lost some chairmanships and key voices through reassignments and election losses, but the area will continue to have representation in the state's education debate. Among the locals on the committees are Democrat Rick Kriseman and Republican Jeffrey Brandes of St. Petersburg, Democrat Betty Reed and Republicans James Grant and Rachel Burgin of Tampa, and Republican Richard Corcoran of New Port Richey.
