U.S. Senator Marco Rubio on Tuesday announced his five committee assignments for the 115th Congress.
Rubio will serve on two new committees: the Committee on Appropriations and the Special Committee on Aging. For the fourth consecutive Congress, Rubio will serve on the Committee on Foreign Relations, the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
“With so many threats to America’s national security around the world, I look forward to continuing my work on the foreign relations and intelligence committees. In the days and weeks ahead, we must reestablish America’s moral standing in the world, and make it absolutely clear that the United States will remain a true friend of Israel and a beacon of hope and freedom to oppressed people everywhere. The challenges posed by countries like Cuba, Iran, Russia, China and North Korea will require decisive American leadership and resolve,” Rubio said.
