Wilcox elected floor leader for House Republicans

Today, House Republican members and newly elected candidates voted to make Rep. J.T. Wilcox Floor Leader and a member of the caucus' leadership team.

As Floor Leader, Wilcox will be responsible for developing and implementing floor strategy during legislative debate. In addition, as part of the leadership team, he will help to set legislative priorities and create a plan to adopt policies supported by the caucus.

“I'm humbled to be elected by my peers to the leadership team,” said Wilcox, R-Yelm. “I am proud to be a part of this team, working for the values that bond us with all the residents of Washington: sound financial decisions, efficient government and accountability to the people. House Republicans are a very talented group of people, with diverse backgrounds, and we will continue to work to present solutions to our state's challenges. I look forward to working with my fellow House Republicans, and with members across the aisle, to pass policies that will be good for the people of Washington both now and for years to come.”

Wilcox will begin his second term as state representative Jan. 14, the first day of session, which is scheduled for 105 days.
