Himes To Serve On House Intelligence Committee

The congressman from Cos Cob released this announcement regarding his committee appointment.

 

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has appointed U.S. Rep. Jim Himes (CT-4) to serve on the United States House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The committee provides oversight budget authorization for the 17 intelligence agencies of the United States.

“I am excited and proud to have been appointed to the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence at a time when asymmetric and unconventional threats to our nation will be increasingly identified and countered by our intelligence community,” Himes said. “As the recent discussion of the American use of drone technology has illustrated, it is more important than ever that we carefully balance our nation’s security needs with fundamental civil liberties and core national values. I am eager help craft and oversee our nation’s effort to respond to emerging security threats and look forward to working in a bipartisan way to build a safer and more secure America.”

Himes will retain his position on the House Committee on Financial Services. In the 111th Congress, he served on the Homeland Security Committee.
