Vincent Buys, Jason Overstreet and Doug Ericksen head to Olympia next week for orientation and will be sworn in on January 10, 2011.
In other 42nd legislative news: Senator-elect Doug Ericksen was elected Minority Whip for the Republican Senatorial Caucus. He will serve as the fourth ranking Republican which is a significant achievement for an incoming freshman Senator.
