Sen. Amy Klobuchar has an additional assignment in Washington: She’s the new chair of the subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts. Seems fitting for a former prosecutor.

The subcommittee’s job: oversight of the federal court system, judicial rules and procedures, the Department of Justice grant programs, and helping eliminate government waste, fraud and abuse.

Klobuchar will also keep her position as chair of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Innovation, Competitiveness and Export Promotion, which oversees innovation issues and has oversight over the Commerce Department, export promotion, and tourism issues.
