From Highlights of Activities: "To improve our Nation's national security, the Committee identified emerging threats facing our Nation and proactively addressed them, whether to help secure our borders, strengthen our cybersecurity and protect critical infrastructure, combat terrorism, or improve the efficiency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS, or the Department). The Committee helped enact legislation to protect Americans from the threats posed by drones in the hands of malicious actors, shield Federal networks from foreign adversaries, and improve our ability to combat human trafficking. To improve our Nation's economic security, the Committee has continued its job overseeing the Federal Government to help it work better for all Americans. The Committee examined political bias in the Federal bureaucracy, the President's steel and aluminum tariffs, and how the government can get out of the way of patients with terminal illnesses who are looking for new and promising treatments to try. The Committee worked together to approve bipartisan legislation to protect Federal whistleblowers from retaliation, improve the regulatory process, and make the government more efficient. The Committee also approved dozens of bills that protect taxpayer dollars by reducing wasteful government spending and addressing inefficient, duplicative, or nontransparent government programs."
