U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton will join the Senate Budget Committee, his office announced today

In a release from his office, Cotton is quoted touting the responsible path of managing the federal budget and funding the military.


“The Senate Budget Committee handles some of the most pressing issues our nation faces, such as making sure our armed services have the support they need and restraining our ever-rising national debt,” said Senator Cotton. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to put the federal government on a real, responsible budget that reflects the priorities of the American people.”

Also on the committee: Sen. John Boozman. That makes Arkansas the only state with two members on the Senate budget committee.
