“I’m eager to get to work on the most urgent security matters facing America, including combating terrorism, rebuilding and modernizing our military, and securing the homeland,” Hice said in a statement Jan. 11.

Franks, a leading congressional advocate for missile defense, announced his resignation in December, citing a House Ethics Committee investigation into his discussions with two female aides about surrogacy.
