Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson will have a farewell tour of Capitol Hill this week, as she testifies on the service’s fiscal 2020 budget request just a few weeks before she leaves the Pentagon.

Wilson announced in March that she will resign at the end of May to become president of the University of Texas at El Paso. Wilson had been rumored as a possible permanent defense secretary candidate.

She’ll make three appearances before congressional committees this week, all related to ongoing budget review work by lawmakers. Army Secretary Mark Esper and other service officials are scheduled to deliver similar remarks over the course of the week.

Also, the House Armed Services Committee will take up the issue of military housing issues with a hearing on Thursday. The topic has received significant attention from their Senate counterparts, and is expected to be included in the annual defense authorization bill drafting.
