BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. THOMPSON of Mississippi. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

I rise in support of H.R. 5913, the DHS Accountability Act of 2012.

The bill before the House today would create an independent advisory panel to comprehensively assess and make recommendations regarding the management structure and capabilities of the Department of Homeland Security. While there is some question about whether this legislation is necessary, as similar independent initiatives are already underway, I appreciate the effort to improve the effectiveness of DHS's management and will not oppose the bill.

With that, Mr. Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
