Calvert to Lead Defense Spending Panel

January 19, 2023

Rep. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.) has officially been named chair of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.

“The men and women who step forward to secure our country are the fabric that holds together our common defense and what give America an advantage against any adversary,” Calvert said in a statement. “When we send our fellow citizens into a conflict, it is the responsibility of our subcommittee to provide them the resources to make sure it’s never a fair fight.”

Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) will be the subcommittee’s ranking member.
