Sen. Mikulski First Woman To Chair Approps Committee

December 19, 2012

In the end, it was the committee shuffle that wasn’t. Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland will be the next chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, replacing the late Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii.

She will be the first woman to hold the post. Mikulski will take the gavel instead of Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who is the most senior Democrat on the appropriations panel. Leahy instead stays at the helm of the Judiciary Committee.

In turn, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who had been expected to ascend to the Judiciary chairmanship, will stay put at the top of the Intelligence Committee.
