What Risch will be up to

Idaho Sen. Jim Risch got his subcommittee assignment today, and they seem to be pretty well matched with the state and the region.

The freshman Republican even got a “power” post of sorts. He’s the ranking Republican on the Senate Energy Subcommittee. (And yes, that’s an attempt to make it work on the literal level as well as the figurative level…albeit not necessarily a good attempt.)

He also is on the Public Lands and Forestry Subcommittee, which is also part of the Natural Resources and Energy Committee. Over on the Foreign Relations Committee, he’s ranking Rep on the Near Eastern and South/Central Asia Subcommittee; he also has seats on African Affairs, European Affairs, Western Hemisphere, and Peace Corps subcommittees.

Wait a minute. Near East. Asia. Africa. Europe. Western Hemisphere. . .
