Whether it is Russia conducting cyberattacks on our homeland, China engaging in industrial espionage and intellectual property theft, or terrorist organizations like ISIS attempting to recruit using social media, cybersecurity has become a critical element of our national security in the 21st century. As a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee, I am proud to be on the frontline working to protect and strengthen our national security from evolving cyber threats.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), joined by Reps. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA), Liz Cheney (R-WY), and Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) yesterday introduced the Defending America’s 5G Future Act. This legislation would codify President Trump’s Executive Order that placed Huawei on the Commerce Department’s Entity List and would also provide Congress with the ability to block waivers provided to companies looking to engage in business with Huawei.
As far as politicians go, U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher is a bit of a nerd.
He'll remind you about Article II of the Constitution, which grants power to Congress that he believes has been hacked away. He wrote his dissertation on President Dwight Eisenhower's Project Solarium, and is now part of a similar commission to look at cybersecurity.
He focuses on committee work, he said, a very un-sexy part of governing.
After a few busy weeks in Washington D.C., Congressman Gallagher was happy to be back home in Wisconsin to meet with constituents and honor the fallen during Memorial Day Weekend. Catch some highlights of his visits across the Eighth District below.
