Congresswoman Susan Davis Announces Subcommittee Selections on House Armed Services Committee
Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement regarding her selections of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee and the Strategic Forces Subcommittee. Davis also relinquished her post as ranking member of the Military Personnel Subcommittee for the ranking member position on the Higher Education Subcommittee of the House Education and Workforce Committee.
“San Diego is a cornerstone of Naval operations for our nation. As a member of Seapower, I will be able to ensure San Diego continues as a leader in that role, and in ship acquisition programs as well.
“There has been increasing interest regarding the United States’ nuclear capability and space programs. The Strategic Forces Subcommittee has jurisdiction over these areas, including deep strike bombers and related systems, ballistic missile defense, and Department of Energy national security programs.
“While it was a tough decision to leave the Military Personnel Subcommittee, I will continue to play a key role in shaping policy that ensures our servicemembers have the pay, benefits, and support they deserve.
“I am excited for the new opportunities that both these subcommittees bring to strengthen our nation’s defense.”
