Democrats Shake Up Lineup on Key Health Committees Impacting 340B

U.S. Senate Democrats late Tuesday afternoon announced their committee assignments for the 117th Congress. Senate Republicans had not yet announced their committee members as of this morning. However, Sen. Richard Burr (N.C.) will be the ranking Republican on the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, Sen. Michael Crapo (Idaho) will be the lead GOP lawmaker on Finance, and Sen. Richard Shelby (Ala.) will be the ranking Republican on Appropriations.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) traded her place on HELP for the Democratic seat that was added to the coveted Finance Committee for this session of Congress. The HELP Committee also picked up an extra Democratic seat, which with Warren’s departure created two vacancies. Senate freshmen Ben Ray Lujan (N.M.) and John Hickenlooper (Colo.) are the two new Democrats on the HELP panel.
