Senate Committee Musical Chairs
For your convenience, we’ve created a presentation tracking the “musical chairs” on Senate committees. For each committee, we’ve identified both members who have left the committee, as well as those who have joined as new members. This document also tracks members who are retiring and those who are running for reelection in 2018. As there are quite a few moving pieces, each page includes a key to help guide you through the changes.
As you will see, some committees, such as the Appropriations Committee, have not seen any changes. Meanwhile, other committees have not only welcomed new members, but also seen changes in the ratio between the number of Republicans and Democrats who serve on the committee. For some committees, it is also striking how different committee membership may look in the 116th Congress, given retirements and/or the high number of Democrats relative to the low number of Republicans currently in cycle.
