Today, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10) was named the Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces.

“As a previous chairman of this subcommittee, I am honored to be returning to a leadership role on Strategic Forces,” said Ranking Member Turner. “This subcommittee tackles vital assets to our national security including our nuclear arsenal, ballistic missile defense, our military’s assets in outer space, and Department of Energy’s national security programs. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure our national security interests in space and a nuclear deterrence that protects the homeland and assures our allies.”

“Mike has been a champion of the strategic forces agenda and I am pleased to have him returning as the leading the Republican voice on the subcommittee,” said House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Mac Thornberry (TX-13). “His experience in this area will be critical to this committee’s success.”
