Paul gets committee assignments

U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky received placement on four committees, Senate Republicans announced Thursday.

Paul will serve on Energy and Natural Resources; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; Homeland Security and Government Affairs; and Small Business committees.

"I look forward to serving on these four committees and working to enact the small-government, debt-slashing agenda I came here to accomplish," Paul said in a statement. "These placements are great news for Kentuckians, as I will be poised to fight for coal, repeal Obamacare, work to eliminate wasteful spending, and look out for the best interests of our many small businesses."
