Congressman Garamendi named chair of Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman John Garamendi (D-Davis, Fairfield, Yuba City) has been selected by his committee colleagues to serve as chair of the Readiness Subcommittee on the House Armed Services Committee.

The Readiness Subcommittee oversees defense programs that enable the military services to be prepared to fight. Military units that have sufficient equipment, trained personnel, and supplies are considered “ready.”

“I look forward to working with House Armed Services Committee Chair, Adam Smith, to support our military as it continues to adapt to 21st century threats. I will work diligently with my colleagues on the Readiness Subcommittee to ensure the United States military remains the strongest, most capable, and wisest military on earth,” Garamendi said.

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 1,000 military installations and bases worldwide, and efforts to improve energy resiliency, including climate change adaptation, and environmental health issues.
