U.S. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) delivered the following remarks at today's Organizational Meeting and also announced subcommittee assignments for the 113th Congress. The Committee Rules, Oversight Plan and a live feed of the hearing can be found here.

Chairman McCaul: "Today we will adopt the Committee's Oversight Plan, Committee Rules, and a pro forma Hiring Resolution. These documents represent the Committee's commitment to a strong bipartisan effort to accomplish the goals which are so essential to our national security. I would like to thank Ranking Member Thompson and his staff for their collaborative approach to working with us to facilitate increased transparency, deliberation, and partnership.

"Thomas Jefferson counseled that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Yet, I wonder if Jefferson ever could have envisioned the nature of the challenges America now faces in the 21st century. The threats we face today are complex and numerous, and continually evolving. Ensuring our national security requires not only robust intelligence and military strength, but also perseverance and imagination."
