Homeland security

Many of the broad homeland security and intelligence issues before Congress this term will be addressed by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, chaired again by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). In announcing the committee's agenda, Collins stressed overseeing and improving the Department of Homeland Security and monitoring the outcome of new intelligence legislation. The committee also plans to investigate sources of terrorism financing. In addition, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) announced that antiterrorism legislation (S. 3) introduced by Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) will be a priority. S. 3 would increase penalties for attacks against rail systems, passenger vessels, and mass transit. The bill also includes provisions designed to aid vaccine production and protect drug companies from liability related to vaccine programs.
