110th Senate Committee Assignments for Senators Reed and Whitehouse

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
  • Judiciary
  • Select Committee on Intelligence
  • Budget
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…
  • Appropriations
  • Armed Services
  • Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions
  • Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs

The Judiciary Comm. fully comliments Sheldon’s experience and will be a perfect fit for him. It will be great to see Whitehouse working with Leahy, Biden, and Kennedy to stop radical judges like Samuel Alito.
