WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today announced that in January she will continue to serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), and that she will join the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
“I am proud to continue serving on Senate Appropriations and HELP Committees and I look forward to joining the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. Working on behalf of the people of Wisconsin on these committees will provide me with a great opportunity to continue focusing on issues important to our state,” said Senator Baldwin. “My top priority is working to build a strong Made in Wisconsin economy that works for everyone. So I will continue to focus on investing in job training and workforce readiness; making higher education more affordable; strengthening our manufacturing economy; and growing small business start-ups by supporting innovation, science and research. I will also continue my fight to provide affordable health care for all Americans and work to protect Medicare and Social Security for today’s seniors and future generations. Joining the Commerce Committee will also allow me an opportunity to work on two issues that can help create stronger economic growth in Wisconsin. We need to make better investments in rural broadband and I look forward to working on behalf of Wisconsin’s agriculture, timber and manufacturing industries to make sure they have strong transportation infrastructure to ship their goods to market.”
