CFATS Gasoline Notice Change

The Department of Homeland Security will be re-issuing the notice posted earlier this week in the Federal Register concerning their request for comments on the issue of gasoline terminals and the CFATS regulations. The footnotes were misplaced in the version published on January 12th. The new version to be published tomorrow will correct that issue and change the end of the comment period. The new date should be March 18th, 2010.

In addition to what you wrote for Gasoline security comments, I would contribute the fact that these above ground storage tanks are "visible" targets for terrorists to strike at. If I had to put a terrorist's hat on, I'd say why not strike it if it is there and it will make news.

It would further the terrorist's cause to strike fear on the public, bring attention to their cause, and show authorities they cannot thwart these kinds of attacks. My point here is to point out what I see as an obvious reason these kinds of facilities should have beefed up security.
