State Senate Democrats, unlike their counterparts in the House, quickly organized after Tuesday’s election and have kept Senate President Shan Tsutsui of Maui as their leader.

Senate Vice President Donna Mercado Kim remains in her post, according to a Senate announcement, while Sen. David Ige is still chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Senate Majority Leader Brickwood Galuteria will keep his post. Sen. Clayton Hee remains chairman of the the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee.

The Senate also adjusted its roster of committees, giving Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz the Senate Economic Development and Housing Committee, Sen. Malama Solomon the Senate Water and Land Committee, Sen. Brian Taniguchi the Senate Higher Education Committee, and Sen. Glenn Wakai the Senate Arts and Technology Committee.
