Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On the EAGLES Act and National Threat Assessment Center
Wednesday, June 10, 2019
Understanding the common factors of past acts of mass violence can help us prevent future tragedies. The Secret Service, through its National Threat Assessment Center, compiles and studies data on these risk factors.
Yesterday, the Secret Service released its report on Mass Attacks in Public Spaces, which confirms that there are often warning signs before targeted violence.
I introduced the EAGLES Act to expand the National Threat Assessment Center to conduct additional research and training to prevent targeted violence.
Congress should pass this law to help stop violence before it happens.
