  New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan is announcing her initial committee assignments in the U.S. Senate.

Hassan, who defeated Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte last month, has been assigned to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

Hassan says she's honored to be appointed to committees that will allow her to continue to focus on critical New Hampshire priorities, such as the drug abuse crisis, access to health care, affordable higher education and keeping communities safe.

The appointments must be approved by the Democratic Caucus and full Senate.

Hassan is resigning as governor on Jan. 2 in advance of her Senate swearing-in on Jan. 3. Senate President Chuck Morse will be acting governor until Republican Gov.-elect Chris Sununu's inauguration on Jan. 5.
