house Bill H.R. 769

Should the Homeland Security Counterterrorism Advisory Board Be Permanent?

Argument in favor

The Counterterrorism Advisory Board is a valuable tool in the Dept. of Homeland Security’s (DHS) fight against terrorism and other threats against the American homeland. It should be made permanent.

There should be separate, independent enforcement with regards to counterterrorism, just as there is for sex crimes, homicides, robberies etc. the ability to focus on the crimes or issue at hand without having to break away to look at another crime is beneficial

Argument opposed

Homeland Security has kept the Counterterrorism Advisory Board running for nine years, and there’s no reason to think it’ll be discontinued. There’s no need to codify it permanently, as DHS will keep it around as long as it’s useful.

No plan, no details, no budget impact assessment, nada. No way. No more blackbox spending.

Last thing homeland insecurity ( not a typo) needs is more responsibility. I favor dissolution of the entire department.

Permanent? No way! This country cannot be in a constant state of fear about another terrorist attack! Plus, this just seems like an endless money pit!

    As noted by others there are no details or plan. Anymore I’m convinced Democrat and intelligence don’t go in the same sentence.

    Let’s make it non partisan and fill it with experts that any President or Congress could depend upon.

    They are as worthless as two titis on a bull. Where were they with Russia and cyber attacks on US. the only thing they seem to be good for is making you take your shoes off at airports and evading to tell the truth to congress. We have always had enough with CIA and FBI.

    Hell no! These idiots haven't found a single terrorist pre-attack since the agency was formed in haste and panic from the unwanted dreggs of all the OTHER existing agencies.

    Terrorism is a constant threat in this day and age, both domestic and abroad. If, by some miracle, that fact changes over the course of our future, we can address this department again. Until then, however, it's better not to waste time on these little votes repeatedly.

    Don't trust any bill put forward by a Republican, thanks to Trump, McConnell and the Republicans who had their private meeting with Putin!

    Where is the information for this bill? No major questions are answered, and no details explained beyond the title. It sounds like pork-barrel vagueness.

    This sounds like another feel-good, do-nothing bill advanced so that someone can claim they're "hard on terrorism". We need real action, not show bills.
