Readiness Subcommittee Chairman Garamendi Appointed to National Defense Authorization Act Conference Committee

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA), chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee within the House Armed Services Committee, this week was named a conferee to the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, which provides the authority and direction for all United States military activities.

“I’m pleased to once again serve as a member of the National Defense Authorization Act conference committee,” Garamendi said. “As chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee, I oversee one-third of the Department of Defense’s programs. The Readiness Subcommittee took bold steps in its subcommittee mark to address the climate crisis and prohibit the President from usurping Congress’ power of the purse by raiding vital military construction projects to pay for his border wall. We also acted to address the privatized military housing crisis and provide relief to veterans and service members experiencing health issues from exposure to Agent Orange, PFAS, and other toxins.

“I will fight to ensure that the strong language we secured in the House-passed NDAA remains in the final bill. I will also ensure that the support I helped secure for the missions at Travis and Beale Air Force Bases in my district are supported in the final version of the legislation that reaches the president’s desk,” he said.

Garamendi’s district includes the northern half of Lake County, Calif.
