Ten days into the fiscal fiasco and Congress isn’t paying much attention to anything else. There were a total of nine pieces of legislation introduced yesterday and only two did not address spending or the debt limit. One of those may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 3283 Latest Title: To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to modernize and implement the national integrated public alert and warning system to disseminate homeland security information and other information, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Bilirakis, Gus M. (R,FL)
It will be interesting to see if this modifies the current National Terrorism Alert System, the never used replacement to the overused color coded alert system.
