Congress Passes Bill Giving Capitol Police Chief Authority To Request National Guard Help

In a Rare moment of Bipartisanship, the House and Senate, have Passed by Unanimous Consent, a Bill that would give the Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police Unilateral Control, to Ask for Support from the National Guard or Federal Law Enforcement, in the Event of an Emergency.

The Bill goes to President Biden to be signed into Law.

As it stands now, the Chief must get, the Consent of the Capitol Police Board, to ask for this type of Back Up.

Both Republicans and Democrats have felt that Layer of Bureaucracy, was at least part of what led to, a Delayed Response from Federal Forces supporting Capitol Police, on January 6.
