Washington, DC - Congressman Palmer released the following statement after President Trump's State of the Union Address.
Washington D.C. – U.S. Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL) is pleased that Congress passed H.R. 3490, the NCFI Authorization Act, which fully authorizes The National Computer Forensics Institute in Hoover, Alabama.
“The National Computer Forensics Institute is a one-of-a-kind facility that trains scores of officers, prosecutors and judges from all 50 states in cyber-security, and has graduates from hundreds of agencies,” Palmer said. “I am pleased that the House supports its full authorization.”
Alabama's House delegation was unanimous in voting to put plans for the U.S. to take in Iraqi and Syrian refugees on hold for at least two years on Thursday, helping the lower chamber reach a veto-proof majority against President Barack Obama. The legislation passed by a vote of 289-137.
