Congressman Mike Rogers made the following remarks on the 11th anniversary of the deadly terrorist attacks across our country on September 11, 2001.
"Every single American was affected by those heinous acts of terror on American soil. So many lives were lost, and families were torn apart. Our country wept on that early autumn day and we all continue to remember the families of those who lost their lives."
On Tuesday, Rogers will chair a Transportation Security subcommittee hearing entitled "Eleven Years After 9/11: Can TSA Evolve To Meet the Next Terrorist Threat?" The subcommittee on the Homeland Security Committee has oversight of the Transportation Security Administration which works to secure our nation's transportation system.
"As we again face this grave occasion I hope tomorrow's hearing will help TSA become a smarter and leaner agency, but more importantly, also hope everyone across East Alabama will continue to keep the victims and their families in our prayers as our nation still heals from that tragic day," Rogers added.
