GOPers in Campaign Mode For Top Spots On House Environmental Committees

“Even with vote tallying still underway, some House Republicans are already eyeing the next race, laying the groundwork for leadership positions on Congress’s environmentally-focused committees.

The retirements of House Natural Resources ranking member Rob Bishop (Utah) and Energy and Commerce Chairman Greg Walden (Ore.) have left open seats at a time where Democrats may only hold a slim majority.

The steering committee that selects committee leaders could be assembled by the middle of the month, with presentations from candidates slated for as early as the first week of December.”
