ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Congress is likely to start immediate work on long-term anti-terrorism site security legislation. Rick Hind, legislative director for the Greenpeace national toxics campaign, described the short-term bill, agreed at the end of last Congress, as one of the most glaring pieces of unfinished business from the last Congress and wholly inadequate. Hind said that Greenpeace will press Democrats for two key elements missing from the existing law.
