Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 5077, the Intelligence Authorization Act:

“America would be left defenseless without robust intelligence. Terrorist plots are stopped, enemy leaders are targeted, and America is protected because of the invaluable information gathered by our intelligence community. Chairman Nunes (CA-22) and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence have yet again ensured our nation has the capabilities we need to keep the American people safe.”
