Sullivan Again Named Lead Republican on Senate Armed Services Subcommittee

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) on Tuesday announced that U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) has been selected to serve another term as the lead Republican on the Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support in the 117th Congress.

In his capacity as the ranking member of the SASC Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support, Sen. Sullivan will oversee military readiness across each branch within the Department of Defense, including training, logistics and maintenance programs, military construction, family housing, and defense energy and environmental programs.

“Over the course of the 116th Congress, this committee worked tirelessly to ensure our service members have the resources, equipment, and training necessary to secure our vital national security interests as the U.S. prepares for increasing threats from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea,” said Senator Sullivan. “We’ve made tremendous progress in raising readiness levels across the force, securing supply chains, and bringing attention to vital issues, like inadequate military housing and great power competition in the Arctic. We must continue to build on this progress to make certain the U.S. military has the capability, capacity, and competency to reassure our allies and partners and deter the increasingly complex and diverse array of threats posed by our nation’s adversaries.” 

Sen. Sullivan held numerous hearings in the 116th Congress aimed at improving readiness and oversight of the armed forces, including:
