New Appointment

By  | 

Colorado Democratic Congressman Mark Udall has been named to the House Armed Services Committee.

Udall -- a critic of President Bush's policies on the war in Iraq -- said he sought the appointment to focus on the war, plus military modernization and Colorado military installations.

Udall also serves on the Science Committee.

He's seeking a waiver of House rules that limit committee assignments, so he can retain a seat on the Resources Committee.
