Rep. Stephanie McClintock appointed assistant ranking Republican on Capital Budget Committee

Rep. Stephanie McClintock was recently appointed as the new assistant ranking member on the House Capital Budget Committee. This critical fiscal committee creates the state capital budget which approves money for the construction and repair of public buildings and for other long-term investments, such as land acquisitions and transfers.

“I am grateful and humbled to be selected to serve as the assistant ranking Republican on this very important fiscal committee, and I’m committed to getting up to speed in this new role,” said McClintock, R-Vancouver. “I look forward to working on the many, key financial decisions that play such a vital role in funding our state’s infrastructure.”

The Capital Budget Committee also considers grants and loans to local governments or nonprofit organizations for infrastructure, broadband, housing, and cultural and heritage facilities. Additionally, it considers bills relating to public works contracting; state buildings and land; and the authorization of state debt.

As the minority party, Republicans do not chair any of the legislative committees. However, they do have a ranking member, which are the leaders of the minority party in each committee. The assistant ranking member is the second in command to the ranking member in each legislative committee.

“This is a great opportunity and I’m excited to take on the responsibilities of this new role as we work to help everyone throughout Washington,” said McClintock.

The state Legislature will reconvene again in January of 2024.
