U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, will continue his chairman position for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The former Chattanooga mayor will also be a member of the following committees: Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; Budget; and Aging.

In his announcement, Corker said:


As I traveled across the Volunteer State this year, Tennesseans made clear that they are eager to have a president and Congress that will work together to govern responsibly, grow our economy, address our dismal fiscal situation and protect American interests around the world. I look forward to serving as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and as a member of the Banking and Budget committees to focus on the issues that matter most to Tennesseans.

We have a tremendous opportunity before us to solve our country’s problems, and I look forward to working with President-elect Trump and my colleagues to ensure that we leave behind a stronger nation for future generations.
