Congressional Quarterly reports that the federal government has given out about $8 billion in homeland security grants since Sept. 11, 2001 but that most states have laws or policies that keep citizens from knowing just how the money is being spent. The Department of Homeland Security won’t release information on how the states spend the money. And only 12 of the 34 states CQ had surveyed would disclose details of the funding. Where the information is withheld, officials say the information could be useful to terroists (6/28/05)
