The House Homeland Security Authorizers still have work to do. CQ reported today that Chairman Benny Thompson had not yet scheduled the Committee’s organizational meeting.
We do know, however, that Rep. Jim Langevin is leaving the Homeland Committee to serve on Armed Services. Langevin was chairman of the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity and Science and Technology. Langevin founded the House Cybersecurity Caucus and will likely stay involved in the issues, but his replacement is uncertain.
The Republicans named three new members to the House Homeland Committee, which will be comprised of 21 Ds and 13 Rs:
• Pete Olson of Texas
• Anh “Joseph” Cao of Louisiana
• Steve Austria of Ohio
