Cotton Joins Senate Judiciary Committee

Washington, D.C. â€” Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) announced today he will now serve on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Senator Cotton will retain his positions on the Armed Services Committee, the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Joint Economic Committee.

Senator Cotton issued the following statement on his assignment to the Judiciary Committee for the 117th Congress:

“My seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee will allow me to serve Arkansans and the nation on key issues, including court nominations, immigration, crime, and civil liberties. First and foremost, judges must interpret the law rather than legislating from the bench; immigration policies should meet the needs of Americans first; our criminal justice system should protect the innocent, not coddle criminals; and Americans should be able to speak and worship freely. I look forward to working with my colleagues to advance these priorities and more in this new Congress.”
