Owens to continue on agriculture, armed services committees

The House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness oversees military readiness, training, logistics, maintenance, military construction, military installation, family housing issues, and Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC).

The House Armed Services Subcommittee on Air and Land Forces holds jurisdiction over the Army, Air Force, National Guard, deep strike bombers, and ammunition programs. The House Agriculture Committee has not yet assigned its members to subcommittees.

Owens will no longer serve on the House Homeland Security Committee, but will remain engaged in Homeland Security issues that affect upstate New York.

"While not officially on the committee, I plan to continue my work to maintain a safe and secure northern border that also serves to bolster economic development," Owens added.
