National Security

Our federal government has no greater role than to provide for our national defense. Our country continues to face serious, complex, and growing national security challenges around the world. New York’s 21st district plays an integral role in protecting the United States against these threats. Fort Drum is home to the 10th Mountain Division, the most deployed division in the U.S. Army since 9/11, and Elise is committed to ensuring that our soldiers at Fort Drum have the training and resources necessary to complete their mission.

Current threats include nuclear-armed North Korea and Iran, China asserting itself geo-politically, and an aggressive and expansionist Russia. Terrorism continues to pose a risk to the United States and our place in the world. It is critical we protect our nation, strengthen our relationships with allies, and work with our regional partners to confront our adversaries before they can threaten our homeland.

As the chairwoman of the House Armed Services’ Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities and a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Elise is committed to protecting our national security. Through collaboration with her colleagues, government agencies, and a variety of other organizations, Elise has worked to strengthen our national security to face 21st century threats across the globe.

While in Congress, Elise has kept her promises to New York’s 21st District by taking the following actions:
