Sen. Maralyn Chase, D-Edmonds, was selected by the Senate Democratic Caucus to serve as the chair of the Economic Development and Trade Committee for the 2018 Legislative Session.

“Economic development and trade are critical industries in our state that must not be ignored,” said Chase. 
“I am pleased that these issues will once again have their own committee. We have thousands of Washingtonians working every day to provide for their families, their communities, and our state. 
"We need to ensure that we create a climate that will encourage more economic development and growth in trade. This committee has always been bipartisan and I plan to continue that collegial, working partnership. I am honored to serve as chair of the committee.”

Chase will also be a member of the Senate Transportation Committee and the Rules Committee.

After winning a critical special election in the 45th Legislative District earlier this month, Democrats gained a one-seat majority in the Senate. In the majority, Democrats will set the agenda of Senate committees and will determine which bills will be brought forward for votes.
