Homeland Threat Assessment Act Passes House of Representatives

Friday, September 15, 2017

 

The US House of Representative passes a proposal to keep a closer eye on those who pose a threat to the American people. The Homeland Threat Assessment Act was sponsored by Congressman Mike Rogers of Anniston.  Rogers praised the passage of the bill saying that “Since 9/11, our ability to accurately identify and evaluate threats to the Homeland remains stunted. Though talented professionals across federal agencies and at the State and local level are hard at work gathering and analyzing threat information… the proposal closes this gap by requiring the Department of Homeland Security to release an annual, comprehensive homeland security threat assessment.” The proposal now moves to the Senate.
