                         DEFENDING OUR HOMELAND

  (Mr. PITTENGER asked and was given permission to address the House 
for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. PITTENGER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay respect and grief for 
those who suffered loss of life and harm in Boston. I had two of my own 
constituents who suffered grievous loss and one of them the loss of a 
leg. It reminds us once again that those who seek our destruction are 
fully committed to that objective.
  While the terrorists and others work in a very open way, seeking 
public notoriety, they have also learned to work in a very quiet and 
sophisticated and tactical way in cyber warfare.
  Mr. Speaker, we have a very important bill before us today, H.R. 624. 
We need to really look at it, and we need to pass it. We need to show 
the world that we are fully committed to defending our homeland.
  300,000 cyber attacks occur on major industry every single day--on 
each industry. We must stop this. They are bent on our destruction. We 
can do what it takes today to show the world that we are fully 
committed to defending our homeland.
