U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., was assigned Tuesday to the following House committees: Judiciary, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Government Reform.

Collins will be serving his first term representing the newly drawn 9th District, which includes Hall County and much of Northeast Georgia. He was elected to the open seat in November.

“It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work restoring our economy and helping to jumpstart American job growth,” Collins said in a news release. “I believe a lot can be done on my three committees to accomplish those goals, and I appreciate the opportunity to serve with my colleagues from across the nation.”
