"I think that's important also when it comes to chairing the Ways and Means Committee.

It's not just the operating budget — there's so much other policy that flows through that committee."Now, as Senate Ways and Means Chair, Rodrigues will hold a coveted position overseeing the state's $42 billion budget, the operating budget of the largest organization in New England.

Over the past several weeks, Speaker Bonnen has held individual meetings with House Members to discuss their committee preferences.

Speaker Bonnen added, I believe these committee assignments will allow every member to represent his or her district and bring the member's individual strengths to the table, while also providing more opportunities for individual members to participate in policymaking decisions that affect all Texans." In an effort to increase opportunities and broaden committee participation among House Members, Speaker Bonnen has: Appointed at least 9 House Members to serve on each substantive committee, allowing more Members to be involved in various policymaking areas and creating a broader overlap of Members serving on various committees; Increased efficiency by reducing the number of standing House Committees from 38 to 34; Elected not to form Select Committees, thereby giving deference to the committee structure approved by the House Membership in the House Rules; and Chosen not to appoint chairs of other committees to simultaneously serve on the House Calendars Committee.

Amidst the contest to succeed former House Speaker Sal Di Masi, Rodrigues stuck by Rep.

John Rogers rather than support current Speaker Robert De Leo.

A centrist who described his ideology as "in the boring middle," Rodrigues said Thursday he planned to take the job "one step at a time" and work across the aisle to find compromise on key budget and revenue questions."It's still too soon to tell what items are going to percolate to the top," Rodrigues said.

"We certainly know education, we certainly know transportation are the two biggest. But I'm not ready to commit to anything yet."The Westport native, 59, has an accounting degree from what is now UMass Dartmouth and has worked for ABC Flooring, a local company owned by his family, since he was 12.

"After thoughtful consideration, these committee assignments have been made to reflect the seniority and personal preferences of Members and the diverse demographics of the Texas House.

The Speaker announced committee assignments on the 16th day of the legislative session.
