WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement after being selected to serve on the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which oversees intelligence activities and programs of the United States Government:

“Our nation’s intelligence community helps protect the U.S. from potential threats and inform elected officials on how to protect our national security. Overseeing the nation’s 17 agencies that comprise the intelligence community, whose work must remain out of public view, is essential to the health of our democracy. My responsibility is to make certain covert activities adhere to the law and our nation’s secrets are appropriately protected, as well as to support the patriotic men and women who serve our nation in the shadows. I am honored to be chosen to serve on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and will work to strengthen our national security and intelligence capabilities.”
