Rep. Vick assigned to Finance committee as House adds an extra seat

Rep. Brandon Vick, R-FelidaRep. Brandon Vick, R-Felida, was assigned to fill a position on the House Finance Committee during the third week of the 2015 legislative session after Washington House Republicans were provided an additional seat.

Vick served on the committee last session. The committee considers issues relating to state and local revenues, such as tax increases or decreases, tax preferences, and tax administration.

“I'm thrilled to be back serving on the Finance Committee this session, and bring my expertise to the table,” said Vick. “This is an important committee to serve on, especially this session as we work to craft a two-year budget. Since the governor released his budget proposals, there's been a lot of talk about increasing taxes. Though we have many important programs and services that need funding, we need to ensure taxpayers' dollars are spent wisely.”

The committee of 16 now consists of nine Democrats and seven Republicans.

“With a tight margin in the committee, we'll all have to come to the table, ready to take part in some serious negotiations. I'm looking forward to the conversation and hope we can agree on sound policies that move Washington forward,” said Vick.

The 2015 legislative session is scheduled to adjourn April 26.
