Two Democratic Senators To Join Senate Foreign Relations Committee

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog “continu[es] to look at changes in Washington’s global health leadership in the wake of November’s election,” writing, “While Sen. Dick Durbin [D-Ill.], who played a pivotal role in PEPFAR’s creation, leaves the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, two new Democratic members, as announced Wednesday, will join the committee which directs foreign aid.” The new members are Sen.-elect Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen.-elect Tim Kaine (D-Va.), according to the blog, which provides a brief biography of each (Barton, 12/13).
