ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s two U.S. senators will have new committee assignments when Congress starts up a new session in January.

Sen. Martin Heinrich will join the Armed Services Committee. His announcement notes that New Mexico has several military installations, including White Sands Missile Range and Kirtland, Holloman and Cannon Air Force Bases.

Heinrich will continue to serve on several other committees, including the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Meanwhile, fellow Democrat Sen. Tom Udall will return to the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. He previously served on that committee from 2009 to 2012. He says the committee works on economic matters of concern to the state.

Udall also will continue to be a member of several other committees, including Appropriations, Foreign Relations and Indian Affairs.
