USAF Force Structure Hearing with the Council of GovernorsPosted by Randy | July 12, 2012
As the Chairman of the House Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee, today I held a USAF force structure hearing with the Council of Governors. It is vital we understand the impact of the Department of Defense freeze on assets and personnel. The witnesses included Governor Terry Branstad of Iowa, Lieutenant General Christopher D. Miller, USAF, and Major General Timothy J. Lowenberg, USAF.
The hearing was held to receive testimony on Department of the Air Force aircraft force structure reductions, and discuss the implications of these budgetary cuts by the Department of Defense on sectors of the military, especially the National Guard.
