My legislation allowing the Marianas and other insular areas to tap federal funding to build their AMBER Alert systems for missing children was approved by the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Rep. Plaskett (D-Virgin Islands), a cosponsor of the bill, offered its provision extending access to AMBER Alert funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation as an amendment to H.R. 2, the INVEST in America Act, which the Committee approved. H.R. 2 now goes to the full House for consideration. Thank you, Representative Plaskett.
