“The House Armed Services Committee today released legislative language scheduled to be considered by the Subcommittee on Readiness at their markup tomorrow. By releasing the legislative language ahead of the mark, Chairman McKeon is complying with House disclosure rules and overseeing the most transparent process in Congress for composing national security legislation. Read the Readiness Subcommittee Mark. Led by subcommittee Chairman Robert Wittman (R-VA), the proposed mark addresses many issues of concern for depleted force readiness levels and related high levels of assumed risk as a result of repeated national security resources cuts. While some progress has been made in restoring resources, restoring readiness will take longer. The Readiness proposal makes careful investments to improve readiness and reduce risk, guards against unwise expenditures or other actions that erode long term force posture, and protects against unintentional impacts on operations and Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.”
