“Security for the Administration of Federal Election from Terrorists Intervention Act of 2019

SAFETI Act”

 

Dear Colleague:

I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of H.R. 52, the “Security for the Administration of Federal Election From Terrorists Intervention Act of 2019, SAFETI Act,”
which requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to submit action reports to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and Congress on efforts undertaken by DHS relating to potential terrorist threats to the integrity of the 2020 Federal elections.

DHS is the lead law enforcement agency charged with assisting election administrators in defending these networks. Our election process is most vulnerable before and during elections. The Department of Homeland Security should pursue ongoing communication
with the GAO to conduct assessments on DHS’ capacity to manage possible terrorist threats to the security of electoral processes.

The Security for the Administration of Federal Election From Terrorists Intervention Act of 2019, SAFETI Act is necessary to ensure that DHS is continually assessing and reporting possible terrorist threats to Federal elections. For more information,
or to co-sponsor, contact Lillie Coney at Lillie.Coney@mail.house.gov or by telephone at (202) 225-3816.

 

Very truly yours,

Sheila Jackson Lee

Member of Congress
