Blunt Named to Sebate Armed Services Panel, Will Drop Senate Intell Assignment

Missouri Senate Roy Blunt has traded in his post on the Senate Intelligence Committee for a slot in the Senate Armed Services Panel.
"“The Senate Armed Services Committee will be faced with a number of critical challenges and responsibilities this year, including dealing with the sequestration cuts. We must rein in Washington’s out-of-control spending, but those cuts should be targeted in a way that does not jeopardize our national security or military readiness,” said Blunt said in a statement.
Missouri’s Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill served on Armed Services in the 112th Congress which ended at the turn of the year.
Misouri has several major defense installations, including the Army’s Ft. Leonard Wood, the Whiteman Air Force base and the Lakeside ammunition plant in Jackson County, just to mention three of the largest facilities.
