Murkowski Announces Committee Assignments for the 112th Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, will continue to represent Alaska on the same Senate committees that she served on in the last Congress: Energy and Natural Resources; Appropriations; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP); and Indian Affairs.

Senate Republican leadership informed caucus members today of their committee assignments for the 112th Congress.

“These are four of the most critical committees in the United States Senate, particularly as their responsibilities and areas of jurisdiction affect the State of Alaska, so I was glad to keep my membership on these panels,” Murkowski said.

Subcommittee assignments on the Appropriations and HELP committees, and committee and subcommittee ranking member slots, will be determined in the near future. Murkowski is the ranking Republican on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
