Mr. Altomare was invited to serve as a member of Homeland Security Policy and Task Force, the Regulatory Affairs committee and the Transportation and Logistics Committee.

The Homeland Security Policy Task Force is comprised of senior corporate leaders from Chamber-member companies and is the primary policy-originating body for the U.S. Chamber in the area of homeland security. The task force's jurisdiction includes issues such as critical infrastructure protection, information sharing, cyber security, pandemic planning, implementation of the SAFETY Act, and customs and supply chain security.

The Regulatory Affairs Committee is comprised of representatives from a broad range of industries and is the primary policy-originating body for the U.S. Chamber in the area of regulatory affairs and information policy. The committee's jurisdiction includes issues such as the use of, and access to, sound data in the promulgation of government regulation. The committee seeks to enhance regulatory flexibility for all U.S. Chamber members and to reduce regulatory compliance burdens on business and industry.

The Transportation Infrastructure and Logistics Committee are comprised of executives representing transportation providers and users and is the primary policy-originating body for the U.S. Chamber in the area of transportation infrastructure. The committee's jurisdiction includes issues such as ensuring the integrity of transportation trust funds, implementing SAFETEA-LU Reauthorization and VISION-100, working to reauthorize the Water Resources Development Act, and increasing the efficiency of our nation's surface transportation, aviation, and ports and waterways infrastructure.

"Obviously, I was flattered to be invited to join security, regulatory and logistical leaders on these prestigious committees. I will bring our message of suitcase security, naked short selling legislation and modernizing our airports. I hope that I can add some insight to these well-respected and often listened to beacons of innovation for our lawmakers to follow, and I thank the Chamber for their confidence and invitation," concluded Richard A. Altomare.
