Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA), who serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he is the Chairman of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, joined the podcast to talk about the president’s State of the Union address, continuing resolutions, threats to our national security, Navy readiness and shipbuilding, offshore energy, and Virginia tribes.
In this extremely informative and detailed interview, Wittman provides a clear-eyed view on Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and terrorism, as well as concerns regarding immigration, our appropriations, and the tiresome routine of fiscal uncertainty due to budgetary brinksmanship. He also overviews his concerns and ideas for Navy training and ship-handling.
