Subcommittee Draft DHS Appropriations Bill Published

Last night the Homeland Security Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee published the draft of the FY 2015 DHS spending bill that will be marked up this evening. As expected that draft includes language that would re-authorize the CFATS program for an additional year {§530}. It also includes, for the first time language that is clearly (but not specifically) targeted at the CFATS Personnel Surety Program. That new language {§556} would limit the Departments ability to require chemical facilities to submit names of individuals for clearance against the Terrorist Screening Database if they had already be vetted against that list by another DHS program. This provision would only apply in FY 2015.
