Braun elected deputy leader of Senate majority

The Senate Majority Coalition Caucus has elected Sen. John Braun, R-Centralia, as Senate Majority Deputy Leader for the two-year legislative term that begins in 2015.  Braun was already a member of the MCC leadership team and is chair of the Senate Trade and Economic Development Committee.

“We will have a tough job this coming legislative session and it will be important to effectively communicate to colleagues and stakeholders the best direction for our state,” said Braun. “I’m looking forward to engaging people in healthy debate on the issues and finding constructive solutions to the challenges ahead.”

In his new, larger role Braun will assist the caucus leader in communicating the caucus’s legislative goals, policies, issues and priorities.
