Roby appointed to key committees for district
Roby defeated U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright, D-Montgomery, in the November election.
She was selected for the posts by Republican leadership in the House.
"I am pleased to have been appointed to serve on two prestigious committees, the Agriculture Committee and the Armed Services Committee," Roby said in a statement. "This is great news for our area. Our district is home to significant agricultural production and a number of very important military bases, which are critical to the nation's defense as well as our local economy. My appointment to these committees will directly serve our agriculture base and the military, and is understandably a very good fit for our district.'
