Today, House Appropriations Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) named Rep. Ken Calvert (CA-42) as the Vice Chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Rep. Kay Granger (TX-12) serves as the Chairwoman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.
“I am honored to serve as the Vice Chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and I want to thank Chairman Frelinghuysen and Chairwoman Granger,” said Rep. Calvert. “I look forward to working with the Chairwoman and supporting her as she takes the helm of the Subcommittee. Conducting hearings, reviewing the President’s budget request and crafting the bill that funds our men and women in uniform is of the highest importance. As we face numerous threats around the world it is vital that we provide our Armed Forces with the resources they need to accomplish their missions and minimize risk as well as plan for future threats.”
