Homeland security

A bill (S. 2635) introduced by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) would establish a federal grant program totaling $25 million to identify and develop new homeland security equipment, capabilities, technologies, and services. The money could also be used to further develop existing capabilities and conduct research into other options. For-profit businesses, academic institutions, and nonprofits would all be eligible to receive the grants. The bill would also require that the government conduct an assessment of federal, state, and local governments as well as first responders on all levels to establish their information, equipment, and technology needs.
