The U.S. Senate Republicans announced committee assignments for the 112thCongress today. Sen. Rand Paul received placement on four committees: Energy and Natural Resources; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; Homeland Security and Government Affairs; and Small Business.
This afternoon, Sen. Paul released the following statement regarding his new committee positions:
"I look forward to serving on these four committees and working to enact the small-government, debt-slashing agenda I came here to accomplish. These placements are great news for Kentuckians, as I will be poised to fight for coal, repeal Obamacare, work to eliminate wasteful spending, and look out for the best interests of our many small businesses."
