STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR

 

On Senator Roger Wicker’s Committee Assignments

 

“Senator Roger Wicker’s Senate committee assignments build on the expertise and experience he gained as a member of the House, particularly in the fields of veterans’ affairs, armed services, commerce and transportation. He will have a significant impact on many issues that directly affect Mississippi, from national defense, to shipbuilding on the Coast, to land and water transportation projects across the state, to protecting veterans’ benefits.

 

“This is good news for Mississippi and shows the high level of respect in which Senator Wicker is held. I am very pleased the Senate recognized Senator Wicker’s abilities and awarded him these prime committee assignments.”
