Last year, all eyes turned to North Korea as the hermit kingdom launched yet another ballistic missile, this time into the Sea of Japan. Actions like this pose a huge threat to global security and are cause for immediate concern. They also raise important questions, the main being: how do we better prevent hostile nations and dangerous organizations from gaining access to nuclear, chemical, biological and other hazardous weapons?

Over the past few years, one question I have often heard in the 3rd District is: why are the federal departments that have jurisdiction over most Western lands headquartered in Washington, D.C. rather than in Western states?
