Quotes

Ranking Member Thompson said: "i am pleased that the house is getting the opportunity to consider these three important bipartisan cybersecurity measures. with their passage, the house will have taken meaningful action to move the ball forward on improving our nation's cybersecurity posture. i am particularly pleased that one of the bills we will be considering is legislation authored by representative clarke, the 'homeland security cybersecurity boots-on-the-ground act'. dhs' success depends on how well it recruits, hires, and trains its cyber workforce. that said, the jurisdictional jockeying that kept the mccaul-thompson cyber bill in limbo for many months is troubling and demands a rethinking of how legislative jurisdiction is divided within the house."
