The Admiral and Mrs. Richardson were stationed here when he commanded DEVRON 12, and most recently attended the USS Illinois christening.

Good afternoon everyone. We are here today to consider the Seapower and Projection Forces subcommittee’s portion of the FY2020 National Defense Authorization Act.  

Since I first joined this panel in 2007, the Seapower Subcommittee has had a well-earned reputation for productive bipartisanship.  I am pleased to report today that our subcommittee continues that tradition, with the help of Ranking Member Rob Wittman and all the members of our panel, particularly the impressive class of new members that have brought new energy and life experience to the committee’s work.
