Wyoming State Representative for House District 51 Rosie Berger announced on Wednesday's Public Pulse that she will seek the position of House Speaker Pro Tem for the upcoming legislative session. Berger explains why she's running for the position.
Berger said that it will be up to her fellow representatives to vote her into the position, and that she'll find out for certain later this month. If she is elected into the position of House Speaker Pro Tem, she'll have to relinquish her position as Chair of the Joint Appropriations Committee. Berger has served on the JAC for the past eight years.
