The committee is responsible for monitoring the protection of New Jersey residents and overseeing issues affecting counter-terrorism, risk assessments, infrastructure protections, emergency communications, border security and cyber security.

“With all of the major policy upheavals taking place at the federal level, I intend to focus a sharp eye on the impact they may have on New Jersey and how we can continue to best protect our residents and safeguard their well-being,” Vainieri Huttle said.

The committee’s first meeting in the new legislative session is slated for February 1.
