Murray named to Homeland Security panel

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray has been named to the new Homeland Security Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, putting her in a key position to deliver needed resources to protect Washington state.

“Homeland Security is vitally important to Washington state,” she said. “From the Northern Border to the ports along the Columbia River, and from the Hanford nuclear reservation to the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma, all of Washington has a stake in how we address homeland security.”
