Entry Title Date
Celebrating The Public Service Of The Honorable Thomas Howard Kean March 24, 2015
Leonard Lance, R-NJ
"In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, President Bush turned to Governor Kean and former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton to chair the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. The two chairs led an exhaustive review of the intelligence, homeland security, and governmental response before and after the acts of terror perpetrated against this country. The 9/11 Commission‘s work and leadership drew bipartisan acclaim and resulted in major reforms to improve our Nation’s security preparedness. The United States is safer today thanks to the tremendous work of Governor Kean and his colleagues."
The Future Forum February 25, 2015
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"I remember in the weeks and the months and the years afterwards the bipartisan 9/11 Commission Report. I remember the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and I felt so honored when I was elected to come to Congress to be asked to serve on the Committee on Homeland Security. I felt so honored in my second term to be asked to serve on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence."
A Call To Action—Border Security February 4, 2015
Michael McCaul, R-TX
"We also fully fund the National Guard, which to our Governors—particularly my Governor in the great State of Texas—is of vital interest and concern. We allow access to Federal lands for CBP, which, in the past, they have been denied; and we have a U.S. exit system set up—which the 9/11 Commission recommended, and to this day Congress has failed to act on that—to determine who is staying with visas legally and who is overstaying those visas like we saw with the hijackers on 9/"
Department Of Homeland Security Interoperable Communications Act February 2, 2015
Susan Brooks, R-IN
"The need for interoperable communications was highlighted, as the Congressman from New Jersey noted, by the 9/11 Commission after the September 11 terrorist attacks. We know that much progress has been made by first responders across the country in gaining interoperability, and the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network that is being developed by the First Responder Network Authority will further contribute to these capabilities."
