LIEBERMAN WELCOMES HOUSE DHS BILL

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn. released the following statement Thursday on House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King’s introduction of legislation to reauthorize the Department of Homeland Security

“I welcome Chairman King’s introduction of House legislation to reauthorize the Department of Homeland Security and I look forward to continuing to work with him on our shared goal of reducing waste within the Department, consolidating overlapping functions, and improving the acquisition process. The Senate bill and Chairman King’s bill are similar in many ways, so I hope we can get a DHS reauthorization through Congress in the near future.”
