Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-CA), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, today named Rep. Joe Heck (R-NV) as chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Heck takes over for Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) who recently joined the Appropriations Committee. In appointing Heck, McKeon said:
"Joe has been a dynamic part of this committee and I am confident that he will be an excellent subcommittee Chairman. From continuing our investigation into Benghazi to providing oversight into other key issues before the committee, Joe's background in uniform and in medicine make him ideally suited for this role. We have a busy year ahead of us, and I look forward to Joe joining the Committee's leadership team."
