As a United States Senator, Angus sits on five oversight committees – Rules, Intelligence, Armed Services, Budget, and Energy and Natural Resources. These committees play a key role in furthering his ability to best serve and protect the interests of Maine as well as the country.
U.S. Senate Rules and Administration Committee
As a member of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, Angus is intent on working with his colleagues to eliminate inefficiencies within the Senate and improve overall government transparency. The Committee is responsible for issues that include elections, campaign finance and ethics reform. It also oversees the standing rules of the Senate and administers Congressional Office Buildings.
U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is mandated with overseeing and studying the intelligence programs of the United States Government and to assure that those activities conform to the Constitution and the laws of United States.
U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services
Maine has a strong tradition of defending our Nation, and through his work on the Senate Committee on Armed Services, Angus remains deeply committed to continuing that legacy by supporting our men and women in uniform, our veterans, military units in Maine, and ensuring the longevity of our industrial base at places like Bath Iron Works and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. These facilities not only provide strategic value to our national security, but also provide jobs that help keep Maine communities strong.
Angus is Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Airland.
U.S. Senate Budget Committee
Budgets are about priorities. They list what we care about, and in dollar amounts, they quantify how much we care. Crafting a bipartisan fiscal blueprint that outlines a responsible path to long-term economic growth and security is paramount in ensuring that we continue to provide for our communities, seniors, soldiers, and children in the 21st century.
U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee
Lowering energy costs and combating climate change are two of my priorities in the Senate, and I believe that as a nation, we don’t have to sacrifice one of those goals to accomplish the other. By harnessing the power of renewable energy sources, we can move towards a more deliberate, domestically-driven energy policy that lowers costs for people in Maine while limiting the impacts on our environment and natural resources.
Angus is the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Water and Power.
