State Rep. Joseph Souki has announced more of what his lineup would look like if he becomes speaker.

Rep. Sylvia Luke, a leading dissident, would become chairwoman of the House Finance Committee.

Rep. Karl Rhoads, who defected from House Speaker Calvin Say’s faction, would become House Judiciary Committee chairman.

And Rep. Angus McKelvey would become chairman of the House Consumer Protection and Commerce Committee.

“I am pleased to have representatives with such talent and solid background to chair these key committees,” Souki said in a statement.

Rep. Marcus Oshiro, Say’s choice as his successor, has called on Souki to hold a private caucus among Democrats to end the leadership dispute.
