Many bills are floating around Congress regarding domestic terrorism, such as H.R. 1931 introduced in late March by Rep. Bradly Scheider: “This bill authorizes domestic terrorism offices in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and requires specified steps to prevent and report on domestic terrorism.”
Bill sponsor Rep. Bradley Scheider (D) tweeted, “The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act would improve law enforcement’s coordination and response to domestic extremist threats. I’m proud to have the support of @HouseBlueDogs for our legislation to address this pressing national security issue.”
Many bills like this, however, have not been passed by Congress yet, and while they contemplate each bill, domestic terrorism continues to thrive.
