Sen: Brown (D) Lands Four Committee Assignments

Senator-elect Sherrod Brown (D-Avon) will sit on four committees:
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions

Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs

Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry

Veterans' Affairs
Brown did not get the Senate Finance Committee seat that he wanted, but the assignments he did get sound terrific for him and for a senator from Ohio (well, except maybe the forestry part). The Plain Dealer notes that the banking assignment "will allow him to have a say on trade."

Except the forestry part? You haven't spent a lot of time in South-East Ohio have you?

Oops! You know what, I have not. I owe it to myself to get down there.

Thanks for the correction.

Yea, we do have this little thing called the Wayne National Forest, or at least what's left of it.
