Arizona's Elected Leaders Begin Choosing Team Members

The election is over and the state legislators-elect have wasted no time choosing their leaders for the 54th legislature.

In the House, Mesa Representative Rusty Bowers was chosen as speaker-elect, while senate president-elect will be Karen Fann.

And now, those leaders have chosen teams with the announcements of committee chairs and vice chairs. These are important positions overseeing hot-button issues like education, finance, health and human services and the environment.

And now that we know who will chair what, The Show was joined by Capitol Times reporter Ben Giles to walk through some of the more interesting selections.
