Senate Republicans Block Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act

May 27, 2022

In the aftermath of the white supremacist shooting that killed 10 Black people in Buffalo, U.S. Senate Republicans on May 26 blocked a bill that would have increased federal resources to prevent domestic terrorism.

In a 47-47 split along party lines, the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2022 came up short of the 60-vote threshold needed in the Senate to launch a debate, Reuters reports.

The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act passed the Democratic-controlled House on May 18. If it had also passed in the Senate, the bill would have created federal offices focused on domestic terrorism under the Department of Homeland Security, Justice Department and the FBI, CNN reports.

GOP lawmakers contend that the legislation is unnecessary because the president has the authority to organize the administration’s response to violent extremism.
