U.S. Senator Marco Rubio today announced his four committee assignments for the 112th Congress. Rubio’s assignments include the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, the Committee on Foreign Relations, the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
In making this announcement, Rubio issued the following statement:
“I’m honored to be a member of these important committees that address some of our nation’s and state’s most important issues. This committee portfolio will enable me to work directly on policies to promote private sector job creation, keep Americans safe and maintain our strong standing in the world.
“In addition to continuing my work with small business entrepreneurs I’ve met throughout Florida, I am especially encouraged by the fact that these assignments will allow me to work on many issues of great interest to Floridians, including NASA, free trade agreements with Colombia and Panama, our missions in Afghanistan and Iraq, and relations with key allies in our hemisphere and across the world.
“Beyond my committee work, I look forward to delivering on the promises I’ve made to Floridians to fundamentally reform the way Washington spends taxpayer dollars, champion free enterprise policies to help put Americans back to work, and support our men and women in uniform.”
Ileana in the House and Marco in the Senate. Schweet!
