Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) will join the Senate Military Construction-Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, following a number of changes on the committee stemming from the recent death of veteran appropriator Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.). Merkley will replace Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) on the milcon subcommittee; she will move to the Energy-Water panel, reported CQ. Lautenberg’s vacancy on the committee will be filled by freshman Chris Coons (D-Del.). Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) announced the new assignments Monday.
