Yesterday on my final day this run of guest hosting KBYR AM700‘s The Michael Dukes Show, I was joined by Rep. Lance Pruitt in the 7am hour, and then together by Rep. Andy Josephson and Rep-Elect Jason Grenn in the 8am hour.
Pruitt is a member of the House Minority in the coming session, served on the House Finance Committee last term and will again this coming term and, in addition, will serve as the “House Minority Finance Leader” this coming term. He described the role during our conversation.
Josephson is a member of the House Majority in the coming session, served on the House Resources Committee last term and will serve as Co-Chair of the same committee this coming term. Grenn was elected as an Independent, is also a member of the House Majority this coming session and in a rarity for a freshman, will serve on the House Finance Committee.
I asked all three about their priorities for the coming session, focusing on fiscal issues. The conversation provided some insights into both their thinking as well as some of what to look for generally as the coming session develops.
The podcasts of each conversation follow. I would recommend them highly to those interested in these issues in the coming session.
