"This bill continues to build on our significant security needs and addresses many of the recommendations and security assessments received after the January 6th attack. Almost 70 percent of this increase is targeted towards security measures within the Sergeant at Arms, Architect of the Capitol and Capitol Police budgets. These funds continue our investments in securing our Capitol Complex. Threats against Members have increased over the last two years and this must NOT be taken lightly, NOR will we take lightly the safety of our staff and citizens who travel far and wide to visit these hallowed halls."
