Graham Lands Prestigious Committee Slots

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced that he has been appointed to continue his service on four powerful committees in the new Republican-controlled Senate which will convene next month.

Graham's committee assignments for the 114th Congress will be:

• Armed Services
• Appropriations
• Judiciary
• Budget

"This combination of committees will prove very beneficial to our state and give me the opportunity to shape conservative policy on many fronts," said Graham. "These committees will allow South Carolina a voice on policies impacting national security, the budget, and legal issues and provide us the capacity to ensure tax dollars are spent wisely and efficiently.

"I'm also pleased that my colleague Tim Scott has been appointed to serve on the Finance Committee. It will give him and our state a strong voice on important policies affecting our nation."
