DorobekINSIDER: Sen. Brown to be ranking member on contracting oversight subcommittee

Tuesday - 3/2/2010, 2:00am EST

The DorobekINSIDER reported first that Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) will take over as the ranking member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs ad hoc subcommittee on contracting oversight.

Brown will replace Sen. Bill Bennett (R-UT).

Brown is well known for winning the Massachusetts senate seat. But he is perhaps best know to feds because, in one of his first post-election interviews on ABC’s This Week, said that feds were overpaid.

We need to put a freeze on federal hires and federal raises because, as you know, federal employees are making twice as much as their private counterparts.

What we don’t know are his thoughts and ideas about government contracting.

The contracting oversight subcommittee was created this year at the request of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO).

Brown will also serve on the Armed Services and Veterans Affairs committees, according to the WP.
