Congressman Anthony Brindisi has been named to the House Armed Services Committee.

Brindisi will be the only member of the New York delegation on the Majority’s side of the Committee.

Brindisi has been an advocate for a strong national defense and the work done at Rome Lab, DFAS and the Eastern Air Defense Sector.

“This is an honor and a big deal for Upstate New York,” Brindisi said. “Our district has a rich history of being at the forefront of our national defense and now we will have a bigger seat at the table. From the critical mission in Rome, to the groundbreaking research and manufacturing in the Southern Tier, and the defense jobs across our communities, I cannot wait to use Upstate innovation to continue to keep our country safe.”
