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

Reintroducing the FAMILY Act

People across the country are working hard to make ends meet, yet the nation fails to provide the support they need to manage the demands of job and family, and that businesses and our economy need to thrive. A mere 17 percent of the workforce has paid family
