Sen. Hoeven gets committee jobs
BISMARCK (AP) -- U.S. Sen. John Hoeven has been assigned to the Senate's Appropriations, Energy, Agriculture and Indian Affairs committees.
Hoeven said Thursday he's also been put on an advisory panel that serves as a policy sounding board for the Republican Senate leadership.
The former North Dakota Republican governor had been promised the appropriations and energy assignments if he won his Senate race last year.
