Sen. Scott chosen for leadership role on Senate Special Committee on Aging

Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina is taking on a new leadership role in Washington.

The Republican has been selected to be the Ranking Member for the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging in the 117th Congress.

“I am honored to have been chosen by my Republican colleagues to lead the Senate Special Committee on Aging,” said Senator Scott. “Our key priority will be ensuring that our seniors are vaccinated and protected from the coronavirus pandemic while also finding creative ways to make life better during one’s golden years, growing career opportunities for older Americans, and solidifying retirement security. Our nation’s seniors have built a strong foundation for our country and we must do everything we can to care for them.

Scott and his colleagues will look to assist seniors and their families in ensuring they can build a financially sustainable retirement.

“I am excited to announce two key hires for the committee: Neri Martinez as minority staff director and Sarah Khasawinah as minority deputy staff director,” he added. “Both Neri and Sarah bring with them a wealth of experience and a love for policy. I look forward to their leadership as we work together for the advancement of our aging community.”
