A bill from the House Appropriations Committee could withhold $20 million from the Department of Homeland Security's fiscal 2014 budget until DHS outlines plans for its Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards program. The measure would delay the funding until DHS provides "an expenditure plan ... that includes the number of facilities covered by the program, inspectors on-board, inspections pending, and inspections projected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2014," according to the bill.
