On the first anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, Governor Bob Holden has issued an executive order setting up the Missouri Security Council. The Council, according to Holden, will serve as a mechanism for ensuring coordination of homeland security-related activities between agencies and political subdivisions and the development of effective security policies. Holden will serve as Chairman of the Council. It will include Homeland Security Advisor Tim Daniel, as well as the Directors of the Departments of Public Safety, Health, Natural Resources, Transportation, Mental Health, and SEMA. Missouri’s Chief Information Officer, the Adjutant General, the Superintendent of the State Highway Patrol, the State Fire Marshall, and the Chair of the Public Service Commission will also serve on the Council.
