Missouri’s U-S Senator Roy Blunt says he is proud of the work of the Senate Rules committee to fix security problems after the U-S Capitol was attacked last year.

He is the ranking Republican on the committee, which sponsored a law the president signed December 22nd.

On January 6, there was a delay in calling in the National Guard – as Capitol Police officers were overwhelmed by crowds and violence.

Blunt says the Rules Committee is continuing to investigate the response to the attack January 6th — and has created more ways to help the Capitol Police Force.

Blunt’s Rules Committee met Wednesday – as part of continued hearings into U-S Capitol security.
