Langevin leaves Homeland Security Committee

Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I.), who has worked on cybersecurity issues, has left the Homeland Security Committee to return to the House Armed Services Committee.

Langevin took a leave of absence from the Homeland Security Committee, but will continue to serve on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, his office said in a statement. Langevin had taken a leave of absence from the House Armed Services Committee in 2007, according to the statement.

During the last Congress, Langevin served as chairman of the Homeland Security Committee’s Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity and Science and Technology Subcommittee, where he drew greater attention to cyberterrorism issues.

“I am proud of my subcommittee’s accomplishments, especially in the area of cybersecurity,” Langevin said.
