Steering Committee makes assignments for new Congress
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 12/12/2012 5:26:40 PM
He replaces Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), cousin of National Association of Broadcasters president Gordon Smith, who moves to Appropriations.
"I'm excited to welcome Senator Blumenthal to the Commerce Committee," said Commerce chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) "He brings serious expertise as a former Connecticut Attorney General and he will strengthen this Committee, particularly in our efforts to protect consumers and bolster personal privacy. At the same time, I wish we could have kept all existing members. Senator Udall has worked tirelessly on behalf of his constituents and I deeply appreciate his major contributions to this Committee's successes. He remains a strong voice in the Senate for consumer protection and will no doubt continue to make an impact on these issues."
