Ranking Member Sessions

by Jonathan H. Adler

According to The Hill, Senator Jeff Sessions will be the new ranking Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee through 2010.  At that point, Sessions will become the ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, and Senator Grassley will become the ranking member on the Judiciary Committee.  There is a bit of poetic justice in Sessions’ rise, as the Senate Judiciary Committee voted against sending his nomination to a federal district court proceed to the floor of the Senate bac k in 1986.
