U.S. Senator Joe Manchin will have some new committee assignments when the 114th Congress convenes next month. Manchin's office announced today that he has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee. He will continue to be a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

“It is a privilege to be assigned to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee as we enter into a new Congress,” Senator Manchin said. “The breadth of issues that these two committees oversee will help me better represent the people of the Mountain State and our West Virginia values."
