Participants in the group will share information in hopes of disrupting violence motivated by extremist ideologies, like the April shooting outside a Jewish Community Center in Kansas.

Attorney General Eric Holder is announcing the creation of the panel Tuesday.

The task force was first formed nearly 20 years ago under then-Attorney General Janet Reno after the Oklahoma City bombing, and had been scheduled to meet the morning of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. But it never did, and the group was disbanded as attention turned to international terrorism.
