Agenda

Chairman Royce on the hearing: “Over the past year, the United States has been challenged by ever more crises that threaten international stability and our national security.  The U.S. must have a clear strategy that is backed by the efficient and effective use of our resources.   As we’ve seen, a foreign policy that is always reactive is a failure in leadership.  This hearing will provide Committee Members with an opportunity to press Secretary Kerry for an explanation of the Obama Administration’s foreign policy spending priorities for the next year.”
