The Department of Homeland Security is keeping its plan to protect the nation’s roads and bridges secret from state and local officials who have day to day responsibilities for protecting them. 9-11 commission member Slade Gordon ask the Senate Judiciary Committee, “What use is it if the people who have to adapt to it don’t know anything about its existence or what it says.” The plan, which Congress directed DHS to draft, is supposed to have set standards and risk-based priorities for state and local agencies to follow.
