(Nov. 9) – In his first appointment as Speaker-designate, Rep. Mark Ferrandino named Rep. Crisanta Duran today to the legislative Joint Budget Committee.
Rep. Duran (D-Denver) joins Rep. Claire Levy (D-Boulder) on the JBC, the House-Senate panel that writes the state budget. As the majority party in the House and Senate, Democrats will have two members from each chamber on the six-person committee.
“It’s a great honor to be entrusted with such an important position,” Rep. Duran said. “The JBC touches every facet of state government, and I look forward to working with the other members of the committee to see that the taxpayers’ dollars are budgeted wisely and without waste.”
