The Senate Armed Services Committee has rescheduled the hearing to consider the nomination of Adm. Christopher Grady to become vice chairman of the Joint of Staff to Dec. 9.

The hearing was initially scheduled for Dec. 3 but was postponed amid ongoing work on the stalled fiscal year 2022 defense authorization bill.

The job has been vacant since the Nov. 19 retirement of Gen. John Hyten.

If confirmed as vice chairman, Grady, the current commander of U.S. Fleet Forces, will serve a four-year term.
