Brown appointed to Senate Appropriations Committee

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, was selected by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to serve on the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee.

Brown will be seventh Ohioan in history to serve on the committee in its 140-plus year history.

He will join Sen. George V. Voinovich, R-Ohio, who has announced he will retire after this year.

A vacancy on the committee was created after long-time Appropriations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.V., died last month.

More on this story to come in Saturday's print edition.
