From the opening statement of Ron Johnson: "This hearing will come to order. I want to welcome Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. [...] I know in the omnibus, Section 72, the flexibility of reorganizing parts of your Department was actually taken away, which is important when we take a look at National Protection and Programs Division (NPPD), turning that into the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Act (CISA). These are the things that you need to do to do your job to keep this Nation safe. In cooperation with your Department we are working with a number of Members. I see two of them that are cosponsors right now, to the Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018, which a big part of that is really addressing countering unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), which is a growing threat." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kirstjen M. Nielsen.
