CTED: new director Rogers Weed, and proposed new name Department of Commerce

Washington Governor Chris Gregoire has named former Microsoft executive Rogers Weed to head the Washington State Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development (CTED). Weed started his new role March 15. Governor Gregoire requested the legislature to rename CTED to the Department of Commerce in order to sharpen the department's focus on keeping jobs and attracting business to the state. The bill to rename CTED has passed the House and is now before the Senate.
