A question was raised yesterday about whether rising House Speaker Robbie Wills had made any promises about committee chairmanships during the course of his campaign. He writes:
Thanks for the coverage of the speaker’s race in the Arkansas Blog. To answer Cassandra’s question, I haven’t promised any committee chairmanships to anyone. Really! It was the centerpiece of my campaign and in my opinion a big reason why we were successful. I’ll begin meeting with members soon about their interests and start evaluating the best fit for each position. I plan to take my time on most of these decisions. The good news is I have a lot of good people to choose from.
