LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Incoming Republican U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton will be serving on the Banking and Armed Services committees when he takes office next year.

Senate Republicans on Monday announced their committee appointments for next year, when the GOP will hold a majority of seats of the chamber. Cotton, an Army veteran who is currently a congressman representing south Arkansas, defeated two-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor last month.

Cotton was also named to the Joint Economic Committee, the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Special Committee on Aging.

Republican U.S. Sen. John Boozman was newly appointed to the Rules and Administration Committee. He’ll continue serving on the Agriculture, Appropriations, Environment and Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
