U.S. Senator Doug Jones, receives his committee assignments including a seat on the health, education, labor and pentions committee. One of Jones’ top priorities is renewing funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP. This program provides health care to 83,000 Alabama children.
Jones says the assignments provide him with an avenue to begin working for the people of Alabama on issues and ensure the nation’s safety. The newest member of the senate was also assigned to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Senate Special Committee on Aging.
