WASHINGTON – Sen. John Hoeven took the oath of office Tuesday, Jan. 3, for his second term in the U.S. Senate.

Hoeven, R-N.D., was named to five Senate committees: Appropriations, Energy and Natural Resources, Agriculture, Homeland Security and Indian Affairs.

The former North Dakota governor defeated Democrat Eliot Glassheim and Libertarian Robert Marquette in the Nov. 8 for a second six-year term in the Senate.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate to support the priorities that have made our state and our nation strong,” Hoeven said in a statement. “These include focusing on fundamentals like reducing the regulatory burden, reforming the tax code, and finding savings to reduce the national debt, as well as supporting our farmers and ranchers, empowering our nation’s energy development and supporting our military and veterans.”
