Major Changes for House Committee:

A significant reshuffling of oversight responsibility is in the offing under the leadership of the new House Armed Services Committee Chairman, Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.). Government Executive reports that Skelton will shift Air Force strategic air to the Air and Land Forces Subcommittee (formerly Tactical Air and Land Forces). That will leave only Navy and Marine Corps programs within the former Projection Forces Subcommittee, now called the Seapower and Expeditionary Forces Subcommittee.
