The announcement came after Rep. Cathy Dahlquist (R-31st District, Enumclaw) resigned her committee position.

Magendanz moved up from the committee’s assistant ranking Republican, a position he has held since he was sworn in as a legislator.

The House Education Committee faces legislative challenges in the coming years following the 2012 McCleary decision, in which the Washington State Supreme Court ruled the state fails to fulfill a constitutional duty to provide basic education funding for public schools.

Magendanz is a former president of the Issaquah School Board and is a member of Gov. Jay Inslee’s work group on education funding.
