Chemical security: the case for action

Filed under: Infrastructure Protection — by Christian Beckner on January 6, 2007

GovExec has an excellent story in its latest issue that looks at the chemical plant security threat, and describes the conditions that create the imperatives for strong government action in the sector. This is an issue that I’ve written about extensively on this site over the past year, consistent with the arguments put forward in this piece. There’s not much new in the story, but it serves as a useful reminder of why vigorous enforcement by DHS, and strengthened legislation by Congress, is necessary to protect Americans against these real threats.
