State lawmakers this week will choose a speaker-designate for next year's session.

The vote is set to take place Wednesday for the "official" close of the fiscal section. As of now, three Republicans and one Democrat have announced their intentions to run.

Republicans currently have control of the House. If control shifts during the November election, it's possible a different speaker would be selected when the 90th General Assembly opens.
