House CFATS Extension Bill Introduced

Today, Peter King (R-NY), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and six other Members of the Committee joined Dan Lungren (R-CA), to introduce a bill that would extend the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program for seven years.

The House bill would extend CFATS in its current form, and unlike the Senate bill introduced earlier this week, would not include any additional provisions for voluntary public-private training and assistance programs.
