Congress and Homeland Security: Politics, Process, and Prospects

March 07, 2003 // 2:00pm4:00pm
Congress Project
Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Congress moved quickly not only to give the President authority to use force abroad against those responsible, but also to shore up the nation's internal defenses against terrorism. It enacted measures in such areas as aviation and port security, and bioterrorism. But it took nearly a year to resolve differences over creating a Department of Homeland Security that brings together 170,000 federal employees from 22 federal agencies with a budget of nearly $40 billion--the biggest executive reorganizion in a half-century. This seminar explored the interplay of politics and processes in Congress to address this new challenge as well as the outlook for the future.
