(Nov. 26) – Speaker-designate Mark Ferrandino reappointed Rep. Ed Vigil (D-Fort Garland) today to the legislative Capital Development Committee, a joint House-Senate panel that reviews funding requests for capital projects from all state agencies.
Rep. Randy Fischer (D-Fort Collins) will also serve on the committee, which in 2013 will include two Democratic representatives, two Democratic senators, one Republican from the House and one from the Senate. The committee is scheduled to meet on Tuesday to elect its leadership, and by rule the chairmanship goes to a representative in 2013.
“I am privileged to have served with Rep. Ed Vigil for the past four years,” Rep. Fischer said. “It will be an honor to nominate him for the chairmanship of the CDC.”
Rep. Vigil is beginning his third term in the state House of Representatives and previously was the lone House Democrat on the CDC. He graduated in business administration from Adams State University.
“We’ll be working with the Joint Budget Committee to make sure we prioritize capital spending in a way that best addresses the state’s needs — and puts more Coloradans back to work,” Rep. Vigil said.
