Missouri has received money from Washington to help the state upgrade the ability of emergency personnel to respond to terrorist attacks – $10.8-Million to be exact. But the state’s Homeland Security Advisor, Tim Daniel, says Missouri needs more. Daniel says Missouri had expected about $60-Million from the $3.5-Billion President George W. Bush had proposed putting aside for the homeland security budget. Federal lawmakers, however, only approved about $1.3-Billion in new money. Daniel says Missouri had hoped to receive about $60-Million under the initial proposal.
