DENVER—Today Senate President Peter Groff (D-Denver) announced the creation of a Select Committee on Homeland Security.
Co-chaired by Senator Stephanie Takis (D-Aurora) and Senator Chris Romer (D-Denver), the Select Committee will review and make recommendations concerning Colorado’s expenditure of federal Homeland Security funding following a federal audit that examined Colorado’s Homeland Security program between 2003 and 2006.
“I am troubled by the fiscal difficulties left by the previous administration,” remarked Takis. “However, the appointment of Major General Mason Whitney to oversee the state’s program and his cooperation with state and federal auditors has been wonderful. We look forward to resolving any remaining issues and moving forward.”
