U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa has been appointed to House committees that handle military and environmental policies.

Hanabusa, who just started her first term representing Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District, was named by fellow House Democrats to the Armed Services Committee and its readiness and oversight subcommittees.

A statement from her office said last week that she is the lone freshman Democrat to be named to the armed serv-ices panel.
