Aguilar Reintroduces Bill to Respond to Domestic Terror Attacks
Rep. Pete Aguilar reintroduced the Reporting Efficiently to Proper Officials in Response to Terrorism (REPORT) Act, a bill to require the Secretary of Homeland Security to submit a report to Congress after an act of terrorism occurs in the United States. The report would also require input from the US Attorney General, Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and National Counterterrorism Center, and must include recommendations for policymakers on how to prevent similar acts of terrorism from happening in the future. Aguilar proposed the bill after his hometown of San Bernardino suffered a domestic terror attack on December 2, 2015 that killed 14 and left 22 wounded. Under current law, reports to Congress on this type of attack are not required.
