HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s two Democratic U.S. senators will maintain their seats on the same committees they served on previously.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who will begin serving his second six-year term in January, will again be a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, Committee on the Judiciary and Committee on Armed Services.

Also, he’ll continue to serve on the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the Special Committee on Aging.

Blumenthal learned last month he will no longer be the top Democrat on Veterans Affairs. He’s being replaced by a fellow Democrat with more seniority.

Meanwhile, first-term Sen. Chris Murphy is keeping his seats on the Appropriations Committee, Foreign Relations Committee and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

The assignments were announced Wednesday.
