Rep. Garamendi reappointed chair of Readiness Subcommittee for the 117th Congress

On Wednesday, Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, was selected by his committee colleagues to continue serving as Chair of the Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness for the 117th Congress.

The Readiness Subcommittee oversees one-third of the Department of Defense’s budget – the largest of any subcommittee on the Armed Services Committee.

The subcommittee has jurisdiction over programs related to training, logistics, equipment, maintenance, the management of over 1,100 military installations and bases worldwide, and efforts to improve energy resiliency, including climate change adaptation, and environmental health issues.

“I’m honored to be reappointed by my congressional colleagues to serve as chair of the Readiness Subcommittee,” Garamendi said. “I’m excited to build upon the progress we’ve achieved the last two years. The Readiness Subcommittee has worked tirelessly to help the military prepare for the effects of climate change and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, address contamination and health risks associated with Per- and Polyfluorinated Compounds (PFAS), support our military installations like Travis and Beale Air Force Bases in my district, and ensure service members and their families have the best on-base housing possible.

“I will remain steadfast in my determination to ensure that our men and women in uniform have the support they need to defend and serve our great nation. I look forward to achieving this goal with my new and returning colleagues on the Readiness Subcommittee,” Garamendi concluded.
