Washington, DC— Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today announced the committee assignments he anticipates members of the Democratic Caucus will hold during the 111th Congress. As required by Senate rules, Senator Reid will meet with the Republican Leader to finalize the make-up of each committee.
Each committee will seat three more Democrats than Republicans, with the exceptions of the Appropriations and Armed Services Committees, which will seat four more Democrats than Republicans. Democrats will hold, by statute, a one-seat advantage on the Intelligence Committee, and a two-seat advantage on the Joint Economic Committee.
