“I am excited about this new role, which will allow me to continue my longstanding focus on ensuring fiscal responsibility and rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse,” Senator Hassan said. “I look forward to working with Senator Rand Paul on bipartisan efforts to make government more efficient and effective for hard-working Granite Staters and Americans.”
