After the 40% cut for the NY area in Homeland Security Funds, any extra money we get is just playing catch-up.
DHS is increasing Port Security funding from 6.6 million dollars to $25 million.
But it still doesn't make up for what was lost.
There is another problem according to ABC7, "The money is designed to help ports guard against attacks by land or sea but it's not designed to pay for cargo screening or container inspections."
Cargo screening and container inspections are still too few. We need funding for that.
So before King goes on a victory lap, he still has to answer for the millions that are still lost.
