McPherson confirmation update, opening statement

Today's Assembly Rules Committee hearing on Bruce McPherson's appointment was less contentious than expected. The committee is continuing its hearing on March 29, after their Spring recess when the Legislature reconvenes. That meeting may be rather short and a committee vote will likely take place that day.

Meanwhile, over in the Senate, McPherson's appointment was unanimously approved today on the Senate floor. The Senate Rules Committee plans to make a transcript of Wednesday's hearing, as well as McPherson's written answers to the committee's questions, available to the public soon.

In the meantime, Bruce McPherson's transition team forwarded me a copy of the opening statement he made at the beginning of both Rules committee hearings.
