Chair Lucille Roybal-Allard Statement at Member Day Hearing

2021-05-20 13:08

Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), Chair of the Homeland Security Subcommittee, delivered the following remarks at the Subcommittee's Member Day hearing:

During today’s virtual hearing, we will be joined by House colleagues who will speak about priorities for their districts and communities. I look forward to hearing their perspectives on the issues facing the Department of Homeland Security’s vital mission to protect our nation.

After each member provides testimony, I will ask members of the subcommittee whether they have any questions or comments. 

If you are recognized to speak, if I notice that you have not unmuted yourself, I will ask you if you would like the staff to unmute you. If you indicate approval by nodding, staff will unmute your microphone.

To avoid inadvertent background noise, the Chair, or staff designated by the Chair, may mute participant microphones when they are not recognized to speak.

As a reminder, Subcommittee Members can submit information in writing at any of our hearings or markups using the email address provided in advance to your staff.

The testimony we hear today will provide important insight as we work to draft our appropriations bills for fiscal year 2022. We appreciate our colleagues joining us this morning.

117th Congress
