CFATA 2009 Hearing 06-16-09

The House Homeland Security Committee just announced that they would be holding a full committee hearing on “The Chemical Facility Antiterrorism Act of 2009” (CFATA 2009) on Tuesday, June 16th, at 10:00 am EDT. Sue Armstrong, Director – Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (the person in charge of the current CFATS program) will be the sole witness on the first panel. The second panel will include:
Paul Baldauf, Assistant Director, Radiation Protection and Release Prevention, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection; Marty Durbin, Vice President, Federal Affairs, American Chemistry Council; Neal Langerman, Principle Scientist and CEO, Advanced Chemical Safety, Inc.; Martin Jeppeson, Director of Regulatory Affairs, California Ammonia Company.
I have a mostly up to date copy of the committee draft bill (still missing the water works provisions unfortunately) so I will post a high level summary of the bill this some time weekend so that the audience will have a score card to keep track of what is being talked about.
