Committee Assignments

In 2009, Senator Stabenow was appointed to the following Senate Committees:

Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry

Senator Debbie Stabenow is Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry. This Committee has jurisdiction over agriculture programs, nutrition programs, and rural development.

Committee on the Budget

Along with the House Budget Committee, it is responsible for drafting Congress' annual budget plan and monitoring action on the budget for the Federal Government. In addition, the Budget Committee has jurisdiction over the operation of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). While the budget resolution prepared by the Budget Committee sets out a broad blueprint for the Congress with respect to the total levels of revenues and spending for the government as a whole, the Finance Committee and the Appropriations Committee prepare the legislation that actually enacts specific tax and spending policies. The Budget Committee does not have subcommittees.

Committee on Energy and Natural Resources

The Senate Energy Committee has jurisdiction over the national energy policy, including international energy issues and emergency preparedness.

  • Subcommittee on National Parks
  • Subcommittee on Energy
  • Subcommittee on Water and Power

Committee on Finance

The Senate Finance Committee is one of the most influential committees in the U.S. Senate and has jurisdiction over a wide range of issues important to Michigan. All legislation regarding Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, trade policy, pensions and tax policy is referred to the Finance Committee.

  • Subcommittee on Energy, Natural Resources, and Infrastructure, Chair
