Nearly $6-Million is coming to the State, mostly to help local communities prepare for a bioterrorist attack. The money comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And, the Missouri Health Department’s Pam Walker says there’s a reason 40-percent of the money goesdirectly to local public health clinics. The money will pay for both personnel and equipment.

Walker says a lot of work has been done over the past year to get all 114counties to outline how they would respond to a terrorist attack.
