H.R. 3140, the Mass Transit Intelligence Prioritization Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on March 28, 2012

Under current law, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) assigns federal officers and analysts to work at state and local "fusion centers," which are hubs for gathering and sharing information about potential threats to public safety. H.R. 3140 would direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to make it a priority to assign federal staff to fusion centers in high-risk areas with mass transit systems.
