House chooses leader

Warrensburg – Rep. Denny Hoskins said he is positioning himself to one day, perhaps, chair the House Budget Committee, but not this year….

….Hoskins said part of his plan included taking no action to seek a House leadership position this week, such as caucus leader.

“I decided not to run for any leadership position because I would like to be a chair of a committee,” he said. “If you hold any leadership position you cannot be a chair of a committee. In the Senate, because there are fewer of them than of us, they can hold a leadership position and be a chair of a committee….”

Hoskins replied that the Democratic leadership was under investigation by the FBI (mentioning Representative Paul LeVota by name). Hoskins went on to say that he was being picked on because he’s in the leadership of the freshman class, and that he’s considered future leadership [in the House]…
