IST Not Mandated in Chem Site Security Bill

Thanks to all the IFCA members who contacted our US Senators to express opposition to efforts to include mandatory Inherently Safer Technology (IST) provisions in HR 2868.  The Senate Homeland Security Committee (of which Senator Burris is a member) amended the bill to only include a provision that authorizes a grant program within the Dept of Homeland Security for companies that want to explore the possibility of voluntarily utilizing IST.
