WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - U.S. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin has been named to Senate committees working on the federal budget, foreign relations and small business.
Johnson will serve on two of those committees with incoming Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. She was sworn-in earlier Thursday.
Both will serve on the Senate Budget Committee and the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
Johnson’s office says he is glad his assignments will help him focus on slowing down the excessive size and scope of the federal government. He says that’s why he ran for office in the first place.
