LARSON STATEMENT ON INTELLIGENCE REFORM

WASHINGTON, D.C.- U.S. Congressman John B. Larson (CT-1) today gave the following statement on the intelligence reform bill before the House. Larson will vote in favor of the bill.

?After a long wait for this legislation to move forward, bipartisanship and the will of the American people are on the brink of success in the House tonight,? said Larson. ?This reform is now long overdue and it is unfortunate that it had to suffer the partisan games the House Leadership played with the bill in recent months, instead of taking action.

?I hope that the long delay does not come at a higher cost than the few bruised egos of those unwilling and unable to work in a bipartisan manner when the national security of this nation was threatened.

?It should not be lost on any member of Congress that we are debating this legislation on December 7, the anniversary of another day of infamy, which like 9/11 forever changed the future course of this country and generations of Americans. It is my hope that this legislation will help better protect the nation and prevent such attacks in the future,? said Larson.
