PHOENIX (AP) — Freshman Republican Sen. Don Shooter of Yuma is the new chairman of the Arizona Senate Appropriations Committee.

Shooter is Senate President Russell Pearce's choice announced Friday to replace Andy Biggs as Appropriations chairman.

Fellow Republican senators elected Gilbert's Biggs as majority leader in March after ousting Scott Bundgaard from that leadership post because of his arrest in a domestic violence incident.

Pearce says in a statement that Shooter is a strong fiscal conservative who works well with his colleague and Republican Gov. Jan Brewer.
