Senator Marshall Announces New Committee Assignments for the 118th Congress

(Washington, D.C., February 1, 2023) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. announced today that he will return to and rise in seniority on the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions, both of which he was a member of during the 117th Congress. By retaining his position on the Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee, Senator Marshall will proudly play a crucial role in writing the 2023 Farm Bill and ensure that Kansas’ ag priorities are met.

Additionally, Senator Marshall will join the Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Senate Committee on the Budget for the 118th Congress.

On joining the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee, Senator Marshall said,

“Look at our southern border before January 20, 2021, and look at it now. The U.S. has encountered the highest number of border crossings ever, a dramatic surge of known terrorists, and a flood of fentanyl coming into our communities under Joe Biden. We are going to hold him accountable. We also don’t need to settle for the total and complete failure from the weakest, most incompetent Homeland Security Secretary our nation has ever seen. Alejandro Mayorkas better have a good explanation for his role in this mess should he come before the Committee in the Senate.”

On joining the Budget Committee, Senator Marshall said,

“Joe Biden and Senate Democrats have maxed out America’s credit card with out-of-control spending on progressive policies. In just over two years, Americans have been strapped with a level of inflation that is way above acceptable levels, over $31 trillion in national debt, and rising interest rates that make it more expensive to finance a home or small business. This is a terrible economic reality for every American, except for the wealthy elites who have the Democratic Party in their pockets and benefit the most from the reckless spending. I’m not going to give the Democrats a new credit card — I’m going to cut it in half.”
