Phyllis Beyer, President Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Navy’s Department of Facilities, told the Senate Armed Services Committee climate change and sea level rise are her “top priorities if confirmed in the job.”

“It’s affecting the infrastructure and it’s adding to the expense of the department’s infrastructure costs and maintenance,” she said, assuring Sen. Angus King from Maine that she’d commit to contributing to the climate report required by the National Defense Authorization Act. Beyer is is a graduate of the National Defense University and was most recently chief of staff for the assistant secretary of defense for readiness.
