Wittman Chairs Hearing on F-35 Acquisition Program

Holds Air Force Accountable for Major Cost Overruns

Congressman Rob Wittman (R-VA), vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee, held a subcommittee hearing to emphasize the urgency of F-35 program development in deterring the Chinese Communist Party’s military buildup in the Indo-Pacific.

“The F-35 is a technological marvel, but the delays in fielding required capabilities are disturbing,” said Chairman Wittman. “As the Department of Defense’s largest acquisition program, I am committed to providing rigorous oversight to deliver required capability at a reasonable cost.”
