Senator David Perdue Announces New Subcommittee Chairmanships
Perdue Named Chairman of Seapower & Housing Subcommittees
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) announces new subcommittee chairmanships for the 116th Congress:
On the Armed Services Committee, Senator Perdue will chair the Subcommittee on Seapower:
“Today, we have the smallest Army since WWII, the smallest Navy since WWI, and the oldest and smallest Air Force ever. At the same time, we face complex threats from China, North Korea, Russia, and Iran. A robust naval fleet is critical to deter aggression worldwide, project power, and support our allies. The Subcommittee on Seapower will provide vital oversight and support for our Navy and Marine Corps as they work to meet this increasing demand for global missions.”
Senator Perdue will also serve on the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support.
On the Banking Committee, Senator Perdue will chair the Subcommittee on Housing, Transportation, and Community Development:
“Having lived and worked around the world, I’ve seen firsthand the diverse needs of many different cities and rural communities. This Subcommittee will focus on issues facing growing cities, like Atlanta, including affordable housing, mass transit, and the mortgage marketplace. Additionally, we will look at ways to fix the current structures of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which are unsustainable and put taxpayers at risk when economic downturns take place. I look forward to working with Secretary Carson, Secretary Perdue, and others to improve efficiency and accountability across all federal housing assistance programs and bring positive change to America’s underserved communities.”
Senator Perdue will also serve on the Subcommittee on Securities, Insurance, and Investment, and Subcommittee on Economic Policy.
Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
