U.S. Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania has been appointed chairman of the Subcommittee on Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Growth under the Senate Finance Committee.

"We face no greater challenge than how we grow our economy and get our fiscal house in order," Casey, a second-term Democrat, said in a statement. "I look forward to the opportunity to work on a range of issues including responsible tax reform to spur innovation, create jobs and promote economic growth."

The subcommittee is the smallest under finance with just five members, according to the committee website.

Pennsylvania, alongside Ohio, has the distinction of having both its senators on the influential Finance Committee, which looks at issues including tax laws, international trade, social security and health programs funded by specific taxes or trust funds.
