Join the Airborne ISR Caucus

Please join Congressmen John Garamendi (CA-03) and Don Bacon (NE-02) in supporting the bipartisan Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Caucus and become a member today!  The Airborne ISR Caucus provides an opportunity for members
to attend regular events and briefings that highlight the critical importance of the ISR enterprise in keeping Americans safe at home and abroad.  Army, Navy, and Air Force commanders are charged daily with developing and employing platforms such as the U-2,
RC-135, RQ-4, MQ-4, MQ-1, MQ-9, EC-130, RC-12, MC-12, EP-8, E-8, E-3, and RQ-170.  While these platforms are critical in the collection of raw intelligence data, warfighters depend on the entire enterprise of data processing systems, collection sensors, and
most importantly the personnel who collect, analyze, and report vital information to national security decision-makers each day within the Distributed Common Ground System.

Cosponsor the “Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act”

Each year federal agencies submit thousands of reports to Congress containing a wealth of information that enables the public to better understand how well federal agencies are (or are not) fulfilling their respective missions, from ensuring the safety of
our drugs and food supply, to protecting the environment, and monitoring the soundness of our financial institutions. Unfortunately, many of these reports simply sit collecting dust in the Committees to which they are delivered, or are posted in numerous places
on dozens of agency websites rarely to be seen.
