Daines Assigned Senate Committees

Senator-elect will serve on four committees beginning next month

By Tristan Scott

U.S. Rep. Steve Daines says he’ll serve on four committees when he moves to the U.S. Senate next month.

Daines said he will serve on the Senate Committees for Energy and Natural Resources, Indian Affairs, Appropriations and Commerce, Science and Transportation.

The Republican says the postings will allow him to focus on developing Montana’s energy resources, managing public lands, jobs growth and supporting the state’s American Indian tribes.

Daines was elected in November to replace U.S. Sen. John Walsh, who dropped out of the race following revelations he’d plagiarized a college paper.
