House Passes Secure CBP Communications Bill

The House yesterday passed by voice vote the Secure Border Communications Act (HR 6742), which was introduced by Rep. Brian J. Mast (R., Fla.) and directs the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and agents have secure, interoperable radios or other two-way communications devices. The bill also requires DHS to ensure that devices are available to connect to commercial providers when doing so would enhance operations and be cost effective.
