Some federal money for homeland security efforts in Missouri could be on the way, if the state makes the proper plans to use the funding. Missouri could expect $80-million in federal help for homeland security – $60-million to $65-million of that coming during the next fiscal year for police, firefighters, and health departments – the first responders in an attack. State Homeland Security Advisor Tim Daniel tells a House Appropriations Committee the money would come along as a one-time shot. But Daniel believes money to fight bio-terrorism could come over amatter of time. Daniel tells the committee the challenge for the state will be to show the federal government Missouri has a coordinated effort on how to use the money. He says that plan must be in place before any federal money will flow to the state.
