Counterterrorism Information Sharing Improvement Act of 2017
(Sec. 2) This bill requires the President: (1) acting through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), to ensure that, for counterterrorism purposes, DHS has access to biographic and biometric data collected by the U.S. government on individuals associated with a terrorist organization; and (2) to direct relevant federal agencies to coordinate with DHS to minimize and overcome any administrative, technical, capacity, or classification challenges to carrying out such requirement.
