AUGUSTA, Maine — U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree says she will be serving on the House Armed Services and Agriculture committees during the new congressional session. The Maine Democrat said she requested both assignments.

It will be Pingree’s second term on Armed Services, which will deal with issues such as defense spending and the war in Afghanistan. Her subcommittee assignments to Personnel and Seapower will deal with Navy shipbuilding jobs and other matters.

This will be Pingree’s first term serving on the Agriculture Committee. The appointment drew support from Russell Libby, president of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association.
