Meeting in Spokane on Thursday, Washington House Republicans elected Rep. Peter Abbarno, R-Centralia, to serve as assistant floor leader.

“I am very honored to have the trust of my House Republican colleagues to join our leadership team as an assistant floor leader,” said Abbarno. “I look forward to working on our caucus’ successful floor strategy and communication.”

In his role as assistant floor leader, Abbarno’s responsibilities include organizing and managing debate on the House floor, developing legislative strategy and policy, and assisting caucus leadership in negotiations with the majority party.

This is Abbarno’s first election to a caucus leadership position. The 20th District lawmaker will begin his second term in office when the 2023 legislative session begins Monday, Jan. 9.
