McMorris Rodgers joins other representatives in introducing BOUND Act for Canadian border staffing

Cathy McMorris Rodgers introduced the Border Officer Utilization for National Defense (BOUND) Act earlier this month, alongside Representatives Brian Higgins (D-NY) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

The BOUND Act requires minimum staffing numbers at points of entry along the U.S.-Canada border.

“Many communities in Northeastern Washington rely on travel and commerce between both U.S. and Canadian towns for their livelihood,” Said McMorris Rodgers. “While it’s important for us to address the crisis at the southern border, we must also maintain the integrity of our northern border and the relationship between communities on both sides.”

She said that the legislation will support local economies and keep the country safe.
