Rep. Frank Guinta (R-N.H.) was beaten in the Nov. 6 election by returning Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.), and Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), who didn’t run for the House again, lost his Senate race against incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).

More slots could also open up on the panel. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) is joining the Financial Services Committee and could leave Budget, while Rep. Todd Young (R-Ind.) is joining the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.
