Wisconsin U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin gets committee assignments

by

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Democrat Tammy Baldwin will stay on the front lines of the federal budget battle.

Baldwin serves on the House Budget Committee – and she was appointed to the Senate budget panel after being elected last month to replace Wisconsin Senator Herb Kohl.

Baldwin will also serve on the Senate Health Committee, after spending much of her time in the House on expanding care for the uninsured. She’ll also serve on the Homeland Security panel – and she said she looks forward to, “keeping the American people safe” and strengthening our national security.

Baldwin also replaces Kohl on the Senate’s special committee on aging.

Baldwin defeated Republican Tommy Thompson last month. She’ll be sworn in as the state’s junior senator on January 3rd.
