Rep. Jim Langevin, Former Congressman Patrick Murphy Named to Cyberspace Solarium Commission

Rep. Jim Langevin, D-R.I. and former congressman Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., have been inducted into the Cyberspace Solarium Commission.

The new commission will work to build a response strategy to address growing threats in cyberspace, the office of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Tuesday.

The commission was established under a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2019.

Langevin is a member of the House Committees on Homeland Security and Armed Services.

"Together, they will help defend the security of the American people, while also ensuring that we are ready to utilize the ever-evolving arena of cyberspace to fuel American prosperity into the 21st Century," said Pelosi.
