Per the TPMmuckraker: In the Democrat-controlled 110th Congress, the House Armed Services Committee wants to add a new subcommittee devoted to oversight and investigations. Missouri Rep. Ike Skelton, who will be chairman of the Armed Services Committee, has formally asked Nancy Pelosi to approve the creation of the subcommittee, according to a spokeswoman. The panel was abolished by Republicans in 1995 soon after they took control of Congress. Massachusetts Rep. Martin Meehan, a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, has said he wants to chair the new Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.
