Devin Nunes joined the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in 2011 and became committee chairman in 2015. He currently serves as the committee ranking member. He is a long-standing believer that a constant flow of reliable intelligence is crucial to strengthening America’s security posture, and that the Intelligence Community’s activities must be subject to strict congressional scrutiny. His committee priorities include ensuring that our intelligence professionals have the resources and authorities they need to discover and track foreign jihadists, to monitor belligerent nation-states, to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and to deter foreign attacks on U.S. digital networks. As committee chairman in the 114th and 115th Congresses, he oversaw passage in the House of Representatives of the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 and the FY 2016 Intelligence Authorization Act, both of which were enacted into law, as well as the FY 2017 Intelligence Authorization Act.
