WASHINGTON -- Democratic Rep. Dina Titus continues to expand her reach on the Hill, having been appointed today as one of the conferees to negotiate the final version of a massive defense bill.
Titus joins several dozen colleagues from both sides of the aisle who will hash out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the National Defense Authorization Act, the fiscal 2010 priorities for defense spending.
The Southern Nevada area congresswoman was named to the panel based on her work on the House Homeland Security Committee, and will focus on portions of the bill under that jurisdiction.
