In his first meeting with reporters this session, Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, was asked why the Committee on Assignments has been so silent since it was awarded control of the Senate in November.
Message-wise, they’ve been outgunned by the man they meant to sideline – Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.
My AJC colleague Chris Quin passed along Rogers answer:
“I have to let each member determine how often they want to do that and what format they want to do that in,” Rogers said. “The Committee on Assignment’s work is done for the most part and already complete. I don’t know that there is going to be a lot more action by the committee.”
