Washington, D.C.  – Today Rep. Gallagher’s bill, H.R.2453, passed unanimously in the House of Representatives. The bipartisan piece of legislation directs the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that analysts in the United States’ intelligence community have a wider range of skills and capabilities.

After the bill passed, Rep. Gallagher said, “I was proud to spearhead bipartisan legislation that gives our intelligence analysts the skills they need to keep citizens in Northeast Wisconsin and across the country safe.” Gallagher continued, “We live in increasingly dangerous and uncertain times, and this bill is a significant step in making sure our analysts have the robust skillsets necessary to combatting the threat of terrorism and cyber-attacks, securing our borders and infrastructure, and strengthening our defenses.”
