According to John E. Mulligan on the Projo’s Political Scene blog, committee assignments have been determined for the 110th Congress.
Senator-elect Sheldon Whitehouse has received seats on…
- Environment and Public Works
- Select Committee on Intelligence
Two quick thoughts: 1) With the appointment to the Judiciary Committee, it looks like some of the spotlight will continue to be on Rhode Island during Supreme Court nominations. 2) If there is any hope that Senator-elect Whitehouse will not govern as the complete hard-lefty that he campaigned as, it will initially come through his work on the Intelligence Committee.
Senator Jack Reed’s committee assignments are…
- Armed Services
- Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions
- Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs
