Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) got his party’s official signoff Tuesday to chair the House Armed Services Committee for the next two years.

“Our nation faces unprecedented threats, and I am ready to work to ensure our armed forces remain the greatest force in the world,” Rogers tweeted Tuesday.

Former Chair Adam Smith (D-Wash.) will remain the top Democrat on the committee. Rogers and Smith have a generally cordial relationship as the top two members on the panel.

Subcommittee rosters are not finalized yet.
