Senate vice chairs: 16 D slots, 11 R

Senate President Mike Haridopolos just announced who would serve as the vice chairperson of each committee, after announcing his chairmen earlier this week. Here's a few notes, with the full list below.

The list includes 16 slots for Democrats and 11 slots for Republicans. (You'll remember that two Democrats are chairmen.) Under former President Jeff Atwater, each committee paired a Republican and Democrat as chair/vice chair. This term, there are 11 committees with Republicans in both slots. (Including major committees such as Budget and Rules.) Both Democratic-led committees actually have Democrats also as the vice chairperson. Also, Sen. Paula Dockery finally got a committee leadership post, as vice chairwoman of Commerce and Tourism.
