House reps: Shore up security funding at LA, Long Beach ports
from Los Angeles Daily News
While praising efforts to protect the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports from terrorist and cyber attacks, members of Congress aired concerns recently about threats to public safety and the economy if federal funding for maritime security programs isn’t raised to meet new threats. At a rare on-site hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee at the Port of L.A., officials from the two local ports, the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection and the longshore union testified about what has been done to protect the facilities in the wake of two security scares earlier this year.
