Senator Warnick 'pesters' Inslee over lockdowns (Senator Warnick website)

Legislators met remotely recently to determine committee assignments and structures and vote on leadership positions, as part of their preparations for the 2021 legislative session resulting in State Sen. Judy Warnick, R-Moses Lake, continuing in her leadership position as the vice chair of the Senate Republican Caucus.

Warnick will continue to serve as Republican leader on the committee overseeing agriculture, water, and natural-resources policies. She will also remain on the Senate budget committee (Ways and Means) and the reorganized Housing and Local Government Committee.

As vice chair, Warnick will help preside at internal meetings of the caucus and coordinate committee activities as liaison between leadership and committee chairs.

“I am honored to continue supporting my colleagues in this leadership role,” Warnick said. “Considering our caucus is being required to meet virtually during the upcoming session, it’ll be even more important to make efficient use of our limited time. As a consensus builder, I can lend my skills to move the conversations along on policies being considering – our own, as well as proposals from across the aisle.”
