Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY) was appointed to the Committee on Financial Service’s Bipartisan Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing.  The task force will be led by Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Congressman Stephen Lynch (D-MA).  The goal of the task force is to investigate terrorist financing and examine what, if any, changes are needed to upgrade and improve our nation’s ability to deny terrorists the funding they use to carry out attacks.

“As the threat of terrorism continues to grow and evolve, it is critical we investigate new ways to stop attacks and cut off funding of terrorist activities,” said Congressman Barr.  “It is an honor to be appointed to this important task force, and I look forward to advancing solutions that will stop future attacks and keep Americans safe.”
