Republicans announced their new Armed Services members last week.

Armed Services Democrats have not said yet who will take over the Tactical Air and Land subcommittee from Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-Texas), who lost in a primary this year.

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) is in line to take the panel’s largest subcommittee, but she told The Hill this week that she hasn’t yet decided whether she wants to switch over from Strategic Forces.
