Congressman Taylor Votes in Support of Improving Fusion Centers' Access to Information Act
Washinton, D.C. – Today, Congressman Scott Taylor voted in support of H.R. 2169, the Improving Fusion Centers’ Access to Information Act. This legislation requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to identify gaps in information sharing among fusion centers and coordinate with the appropriate Federal agency to deploy provide access to these systems. Fusion centers are defined as a “collaborative effort of two or more law enforcement agencies that provide resources, expertise, and information to the center with the goal of maximizing ability to detect, prevent, investigate, and respond to criminal and terrorist activity”.
Congressman Taylor had this to say about the bill: “Identifying these gaps in information sharing among enforcement agencies is a proactive approach that will pay dividends in the future. This bill is an important step towards making our law enforcement coordination efforts more efficient and ultimately more effective.”
