Chris Dorworth will be new House majority leader

House Speaker-designate Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, announced Monday that he has chosen his likely successor, Rep. Chris Dorworth of Lake Mary, to be the new House majority leader.

Weatherford also announced that the chairman of the House Rulles Committee for the next two years will be Rep. Rob Schenck, R-Spring Hill, and the largely ceremonial position of speaker pro-term will go to Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna.
