Rep. Tom Graves Votes to Enhance Vetting of International Travelers

Washington, April 13, 2016 - Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) supported and the House today approved the Enhancing Overseas Traveler Vetting Act (H.R. 4403), bipartisan legislation that authorizes the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State to develop open-source software to enhance vetting of international travelers.

“This legislation improves our national security by improving how we check international travelers against terrorist watch lists and other law enforcement databases,” said Rep. Graves. “This will help secure our borders, airports and sea ports, and make it easier for law enforcement to keep terrorists out of the homeland.”
