Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown told reporters Friday that he would be joining the panel once headed by his Massachusetts colleague, Senator John Kerry, who is now the ranking Democrat on the panel, the Boston Globe writes.

The Small Business Committee oversees all legislation and issues relating to this sector and the U.S. Small Business Administration.

"Small businesses are the engines that drive our economy," Brown said in a statement, adding that he will be "fighting for policies that will help them grow," in addition to "commonsense initiatives to give entrepreneurs the confidence to expand and hire more workers."

Changes have shaken up the committee's counterpart in the House of Representatives. The new chairman, Representative Sam Graves of Missouri, recently suggested eliminating SBA programs that are ineffective or duplicates of programs offered by other agencies, the Buffalo Business Journal reports.
