Committee assignment changes in House

The House of Representatives made a minor change to committee assignments late Jan. 19.

Rep. David Stevens, a Republican from Sierra Vista, is replacing Phoenix Republican Ray Barnes on the Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee.

House Speaker Kirk Adams said the move was made because Barnes no longer had an interest in serving on the committee.

“He didn’t want to do it and Stevens did,” Adams said.

Because that new committee assignment would have given Stevens, a freshman lawmaker, three committees, Adams removed him from the Natural Resources and Rural Affairs Committee. He was replaced by House Majority Leader John McComish.
