Reid Announces Senate Democratic Committee Assignments

Washington, D.C. — Incoming Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid announced today committee assignments for Democratic members.

“There is incredible talent with our Democratic caucus and we are a strong, united team,” Senator Reid said. “Millions of Americans are depending on us to improve national security, restore fiscal responsibility, increase access to health insurance and reform education. With these committee assignments, we have the right teams in the right places to bring about results for our country.”

Committee assignments must still be approved by the full Democratic caucus, and could be ratified as early as this week.
