WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Monday after the Senate voted to confirm Secretary Heather Wilson as the 24th Secretary of the Air Force:
“It is an honor to congratulate Secretary Heather Wilson on her confirmation to become the 24th Secretary of the Air Force. Dr. Wilson is highly qualified and her experience in the Air Force, Congress, and the private sector will serve her well in addressing the unique challenges our Air Force will be facing in the coming years. I was pleased to meet with Dr. Wilson earlier this year to discuss her priorities for the Air Force, including readiness and hiring challenges as well as controlling the costs of major acquisitions. I encourage her to visit Hill Air Force Base and Ogden Air Logistics Complex as soon as possible to see the innovations and solutions being delivered in Utah."
