H.R. 5089: Strengthening Local Transportation Security Capabilities Act of 2018

Mar 22, 2018 at 1:13 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 5089 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 5089 requires the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to prioritize the assignment of officers and intelligence analysts from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) to fusion centers in jurisdictions with high-risk surface transportation assets to facilitate the generation and dissemination of intelligence products and make security clearances available to appropriate stakeholders. In addition, the bill requires the TSA Administrator to make available a framework for establishing an integrated and unified operations center that oversees the daily operations of a transportation facility. Lastly, this bill enables the Secretary to develop a training program through the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) to enhance the protection, preparedness, and response capabilities of law enforcement agencies for terrorism incidents at surface transportation assets.
