Mass transit security.

Two identical bills (H.R. 4008 and S. 1608), introduced by Rep. Christopher Shays (R-CT) and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), respectively, would increase the penalties for terrorism against mass transit systems. Anyone guilty of the crime could be imprisoned for up to 20 years. For aggravated offenses--which would include any that involve high-level radioactive materials or those that result in the death of a person--the punishment could range from a prison term of not less than 30 years to the death penalty.
