U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns has been named to the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, as well as those dealing with agriculture, banking and veterans.

The Nebraska Republican announced his new committee assignments on Thursday. Besides the government-spending panel, Johanns will serve on the Senate agriculture, banking and veterans' affairs committees.

In the process, Johanns gives up spots on the Indian Affairs Committee and Environment and Public Works Committee.

Johanns says his goals as a senator are "reining in spending, seeing a reform-minded farm bill signed into law and providing our military and veterans with the services they need."
