Washington Gov.-elect Jay Inslee has picked the director of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland as one of the 34 members of his transition committee.

Mike Kluse will serve on the Economic Committee and the Energy and

Environment Committee work group, according to PNNL.

Kluse and other committee members will advise Inslee as he fills cabinet positions, builds a staff and turns his campaign agenda into legislative and executive action.

"The team we've assembled represents both sides of the Cascades, our key industries and people with experience both inside and outside of government," Inslee said in a statement.
