Toomey named to Finance Committee

U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, R-Pa., has been assigned to the powerful Senate Finance Committee.

He will be one of only two freshmen senators on the panel.

Besides the  Finance  Committee, Toomey will keep his seats on the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; Budget; and Joint Economic Committees. He will no longer serve on the Senate Commerce Committee.

“I am honored to receive a seat on the Senate Finance Committee, which is a huge win for Pennsylvania and will ensure that our state is represented on one of the most important committees in Congress,” Toomey said in a statement.

The panel oversees matters relating to taxes, trade agreements and health programs under the Social Security Act, including Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
