NPR looks at homeland security grants

Filed under: State and Local HLS — by Christian Beckner on June 16, 2006

Pam Fessler at NPR has a good segment on the homeland security grant issue today, highlighting a House Government Reform committee hearing on Thursday, at which members of Congress from the DC metro area and NYC blasted Under Secretary Foresman on the grant allocations. The segment then moves to Charlotte, NC, which received a 60% increase in its UASI funds this year, and she interviews the mayor, police chief, and fire chief to find out how they’re spending their homeland security grant money – interviews that provide an insightful look at the mentality of the mid-size cities on this issue.
