Rand Paul on Senate Foreign Relations Committee With Marco RubioSubmitted by Peace Gold Love on Thu, 01/03/2013 - 22:51
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul today received his updated committee assignments for the 113th Congress. He will remain on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Small Business, and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees, as well as join the Foreign Relations Committee as a new member.
"The committee assignments I have received will greatly benefit the legislation I plan on working on over the next two years to benefit the people of Kentucky, and our nation as a whole," Sen. Paul said.
Paul is also one of the two potential 2016 presidential contenders now on the committee, along with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who will retain his post as ranking Republican on the Western Hemisphere subcommittee and is sure want to increase his profile on foreign policy in preparation for a run at the White House.
