St. Augustine, FL – Chairman-elect of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (UT-03), has named Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security for the 114th Congress.

"The federal government's core responsibility is to protect the security of our nation and the American people,”? DeSantis said. “ Yet, from the release of terrorist detainees by the Defense Department to habitual failures of the Department of Homeland Security regarding border security, the bureaucracy has fallen short of what the American people expect.  I am thankful to Chairman-elect Jason Chaffetz for tapping me to lead this subcommittee, and I look forward to working with him and the rest of the committee's members to hold our national security agencies accountable on behalf of the American people."

“Congressman DeSantis– military experience and leadership will help ensure effective oversight and accountability on some of the biggest issues facing national security,”? Chaffetz said. “I look forward to working with him in his new role.”?
