(Olympia) -- The 24th District's state representatives have been appointed to committees tackling legislation on natural resources, health care reform implementation, and even the state's tax structure.
Democrat Steve Tharinger will continue to serve on the Environment committee. But this year he will also be on the House Health Care and Wellness committee. That committee is taking up implementation of health care reform in our state. Tharinger will also be the vice chair of the house Finance committee, which considers issues relating to state and local revenues, tax exemptions, and changes in the administration of taxes.
Fellow Democrat Kevin Van De Wege has been reappointed to the Agriculture and Natural Resources, Health Care and Wellness, and Rules committees. He will also be serving on the Government Operations and Elections committee.
This is the first year that Van De Wege and Tharinger will both serve on the Health Care and Wellness committee.
