The article explains why the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA) is in favor of voluntary cooperation with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). NPRA points that the security of plants is significant and many plant owners and operators have invested on increasing security. NPRA do not support the introduction of federal security legislation because it will preempt state laws. Instead, it favors voluntary cooperation with DHS.
