Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.)

The bill would put a senior-level, White House-led interagency transition council in place at least six months before Election Day to help with the move. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. He's also one of the bill's two sponsors, along with Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.). Johnson joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain how he perceives the transition process today.

Kshemendra Paul is the program manager of the Information Sharing Environment. He told executive editor Jason Miller on the Federal Drive about how the response to the Boston Marathon attack, and other examples, shows just how much progress has been made over the last decade.
