Guest HESHIANDET

some more bullshit to deal w/ thanks to ASSama. fuckin guy.

Senator John McCain of Arizona, one of Amtrak's harshest

critics in

Congress, has joined Senator Ernest Hollings of South

Carolina in

introducing legislation that would give Amtrak $1.77 billion

over two years

to improve safety and security.

Section 2 of the Rail Security Act of 2001 would authorize

$515 million for

system-wide Amtrak security upgrades; $998 million for New

York tunnel

"life-safety" projects plus rehabilitation of tunnels in

Baltimore and

Washington; and $254 million to improve emergency

accessibility to New York

City's Penn Station, renovate the Thames and Niantic bridges

in Connecticut,

and continue installation of the ACSES (Advanced Civil Speed

Enforcement

System) in high speed territory.

Other parts of the bill are directed at freight railroads.

Section 3

requires the U. S. DOT to review existing regulations "and

identify

potential revisions to improve rail safety and security."

Section 4 orders the DOT Secretary to "assess the security

risks associated

with rail transportation and develop prioritized

recommendations for

improving the security of rail tunnels, rail bridges, rail

switching areas,

and other areas posing significant rail-related risks to

public safety and

the movement of interstate commerce." This section would

require a report,

due within 180 days, which would include recommendations for

"federal

financial, technological, or research and development

assistance to

railroads to improve security and reduce the likelihood of

crime or

terrorist attacks." :heated:

its funny

there was actually a possibility that amtrak was going to fold.

the government was going to cut of amtrak funding, which it was supposed to do a long time ago, and with all the financial losses and acela not being the hit it was expected/supposed to, things were looking bleak for amtrak. of course when moneys tight you have to trim away at the non-essentials (aka: amtrak graf van squad). but because of the attack's ripple effect, the trickle down is that there is going to be a big push in security and patrols and it is going to make more shit tougher for us.

:(

yeah...THE LAW heard about this....he doesn't expect much to change except maybe a couple new fences to cut through (again).

 

 

...better hope they don't invest in any night vision goggles.

night vision is one thing...infrared is another...my dad brought an infrared scope home from work...i took it outside and turned it on and looked into the woods behind my house...i could see all sorts of wildlife that i didnt even know was there...pointing it back towards the house i could actually see the body heat from my dad, mom, and assorted appliances inside...shit was wild. my dad was telling me that the particular scope i was using, the MILSCOPE, was a 70,000 dollar unit...the only way to be invisible to IR is glass...IR cant see through glass...
