Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has been appointed to succeed Rep. Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) at the helm, Breaking Defense reported Tuesday.

Colin Clark writes Thornberry will lead the panel in the next Congress to address spending and acquisition issues at the Defense Department.

Thornberry has been vocal about the need for legislation to reorganize the military, according to Clark’s article.

He introduced a bill in 2001 that formed the basis of law that established the Department of Homeland Security and played a key role in shaping a Joint Forces Command.

Breaking Defense also reports Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has been selected for the House Intelligence Committee chairmanship in January.

He succeeds Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), who will retire from Congress to be a radio talk show host.
