Another bold move from the ever controversial veteran state Senator Ernie Chambers. Chambers says he would like to chair all 17 committees of the State Legislature and serve as speaker and chairman of the Executive Board. This according to the Omaha World Herald.
The newspaper reports the Omaha Senator sent a letter to his colleagues on Friday announcing his intention to seek the positions. In his letter, Chambers says he would rotate among the 19 jobs.

This is the time of year when Senators announce their interest in holding such positions. All 19 of the positions are elected and Senators will choose who will fill each seat when the unicameral resumes in January.
