PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds’ spot on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has turned into a leadership position on one of the sub-panels organized under the committee.

Round’s office announced Wednesday that South Dakota’s junior senator will chair the Subcommittee on Superfund, Waste Management and Regulatory Oversight.

The former governor says the post includes oversight of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers.

Rounds campaigned on loosening regulatory burdens on business. He says his role on the subcommittee will attempt to address deficiencies in President Barack Obama’s agencies.
