As anti-terrorism funding shrinks,
controversy grows over how to spend it
from St. Louis Beacon
When the Department of Homeland Security released a list in May of cities that qualified for the Urban Area Security Initiative program, Kansas City didn't make the cut — even though it's been receiving funds since 2003. This year, St. Louis was the only city in Missouri to receive part of the $662.6 million allocated toward preventing or responding to terrorism, and it will likely receive a smaller slice — about $5.97 million — than in the 2010 budget year.
