Brent Waltz Passed OverAugust 19th, 2009 at 4:40 pm by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
Senate President Pro Tem David Long announced today that Sen. Phil Boots (R-Crawfordsville) will replace Sen. Dennis Kruse as Chairman of the Pensions and Labor Committee. (Kruse recently took over the Education Committee from retired Senator Teresa Lubbers.)
Boots is a member of the Labor committee but was not the ranking majority member who would normally be next in line for chairman. That’s Senator Brent Waltz (R-Greenwood.)
Waltz has a history of going his own way rather than following GOP leadership. Sometimes what goes around, comes around.
