Critical Infrastructure Protection Act

On Tuesday Congressman Trent Franks’ bill, the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act, passed by a voice vote in the House of Representatives. I proudly supported this vital piece of legislation which would protect our nation from a potentially catastrophic nationwide blackout. This legislation would direct the Department of Homeland Security to enhance our nation’s threat assessments of electromagnetic pulses (EMP) and implement plans on how to best protect and recover should an EMP event occur.
