Rep. Aguilar Reintroduces Legislation to Prevent Domestic Terror Incidents
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar introduced the REPORT Act to prevent future incidents of domestic terrorism. The REPORT Act requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to collaborate with the FBI, Office of the U.S. Attorney General and National Counter Terrorism Center to submit a report to Congress in the wake of domestic terror incidents. This report will have recommended actions for Congress to implement to prevent future terror incidents.
“I first introduced this bill after the 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, which took the lives of 14 people and wounded 22 more members of my community,” said Rep. Pete Aguilar. “Since then, we have seen many domestic terrorism incidents, including the deadly assault on our Capitol two years ago. My legislation ensures the Executive Branch provides Congress with accurate intelligence so we can pass laws that will help prevent future attacks and save lives.”
Rep. Aguilar first introduced this bill following a deadly terror attack in San Bernardino in 2015. Aguilar reintroduced the bill in 2021 following the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol. The REPORT Act passed the House of Representatives unanimously in 2022.
Rep. Aguilar serves as Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and as a member of the House Committee on Appropriations.
