Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has been named chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee on an interim basis, Federal Times reported Tuesday.

Rubio’s “care for our nation’s security, advocacy for our values and interests, and vigilance toward threats have earned a national reputation,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said. “On subjects ranging from China and Russia to Iran and North Korea to tyranny and unrest in our own hemisphere, Senator Rubio has been on the case for years.”

Rubio is a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and chairman of the Senate Small Business panel.

He will replace Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who temporarily stepped down as chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee amid a federal investigation regarding his recent stock sales.
