The two newest Democratic senators have been assigned to fill vacant seats on the labor committee, a spokeswoman for the panel told Bloomberg Law.
Sens. Doug Jones (Ala.) and Tina Smith (Minn.) were assigned to the Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor and Pensions.
Republicans still retain their 12-11 majority over the panel that later this week will once again consider some of President Donald Trump’s controversial Labor Department nominees.
Jones, a former federal prosecutor, joins the panel weeks after winning a special election to fill the seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Smith, formerly the lieutenant governor of Minnesota, was appointed to the seat vacated by Al Franken (D) earlier this year. Franken resigned in the midst of several sexual misconduct allegations.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) has exited the HELP Committee for another committee assignment, the panel spokeswoman added.
A senator hasn’t immediately been assigned to replace Franken as the ranking Democrat on the panel’s Employment and Workplace Safety Subcommittee.
